Tour and Cultivation Questions with R&R Cultivation
Nick Robinson, co-owner of R&R Cultivation will give us a virtual tour of their new facility in New Hope, MN and answer your questions about growing mushrooms!
Co-owner Nick Robinson is a Twin Cities native with a passion for growing fresh, gourmet mushrooms. After getting married in 2012 Nick lived in Shanghai, China for 3 years and visited 12 different countries to explore more of what the world had to offer. After returning home, he started finding ways to give back to his community in a local and meaningful way. After working in education for 3 years and serving on a school board, he was drawn into the world of sustainable living and urban farming through his friend, Lance Ramm. This was where the idea for R&R Cultivation began.
In 2018, Nick and Lance started their first grow in Nick’s basement. They relied on their 4’x4′ grow tent to get them started at local Farmers Markets. From the very beginning, they experienced tremendous success. In two short years, Nick and Lance took R&R Cultivation from a small, basement operation to a fully-scaled urban farm. Now based in New Hope, Minnesota, R&R Cultivation is proud to sell our gourmet mushrooms at most local co-ops, farmers markets, Hy-Vee, and all Lunds & Byerlys stores in the Twin Cities.
