Mushrooms to treasure from Trammell farm

Imagine arriving home from a trip to find the washing machine had leaked behind a wall, causing oyster mushrooms to sprout from the carpet of your Overland Park apartment. Nora and Matt Trammell turned that misfortune into Trammell Treasures Mushroom Farm. Less than a year ago they started intentionally growing mushrooms in a pop-up greenhouse set up in the apartment’s master bedroom. By fall they were so successful they moved their operation to a 20-acre farm outside Chilhowee, Mo.
