AgriFacture’s Better Shrooms are now available at The Hendersonville Community Co-op. The mushrooms are sustainably grown at AgriFacture’s research and development facility in Flat Rock, NC that is currently testing cutting-edge vertical farming technology to produce safe, organic, non-GMO fruits, vegetables, legumes, and herbs that are available year-round. Better Shrooms, AgriFacture’s first product to hit the market, are Florida oyster mushrooms.
Why Are They Called “Better”?
AgriFacture utilizes Controlled Environment Agriculture (CEA), a technology-based approach toward food production that reduces any points of contamination throughout the growing process. Our highly-controlled environment provides the mushrooms with the optimum growing conditions to produce the purest and best of products.
From start to finish, Better Shrooms are grown to be as pure as possible. Produce grown with our technology is better than “organic,” as this is a blanket term used for food grown without the use of chemical fertilizers, pesticides, or other artificial agents.
At AgriFacture, our produce is completely free of chemicals and pesticides, the growth medium is sterilized, the air is filtered, the water is purified to 0ppm, and temperature and lighting are provided for maximum product production. This process results in a better taste – a better product – that far exceeds anything “organic”. That is where we get the name “Better”.

The Hendersonville Community Co-Op
Located at 60 South Charleston Lane, the Hendersonville Community Co-Op strives to provide organic and wholesome, natural foods, and supplements to the members of the community. The facility proudly features a 100% organic produce department. The Co-Op’s commitment to organic means that nothing they sell contains chemical pesticides, herbicides or fertilizers that harm the environment.
The co-op began as a buying club in 1978 with a group of 15 families who were interested in buying wholesome food at discount prices. In 1983 HCC became incorporated. During its history, the co-op had several locations before moving to the current address in 2016.
