Tyler Case

Tyler started foraging mushrooms at 17 and became obsessed with the palette of flavors made available through a keen eye in the forest.  This passion eventually compelled him to build a small home lab to clone, isolate, and grow out the mushrooms he found.  Noticing the glaring omission of fungi from his academic schooling, in 2012 tyler began sharing his knowledge of fungi with students at Saul High School on a volunteer basis.    When he isn’t growing, hunting, yapping about or eating mushrooms, he's usually listening to podcasts, playing music, camping, cooking, or writing.  Tyler studied Neuroscience at Columbia University.  now he thinks like a mushroom.

Dan Howling

Before meeting Tyler and Brian in 2014, Dan was growing mushrooms at home as a hobby.  One night grabbing a drink in West Philly he linked up with them, and the rest was history.  If he is not at the farm, you can find him at home, in front of his flow hood, playing with spores and cultures in a never ending quest for the perfect strain.  The only time this cat doesn't have mushrooms on the brain is when he is at the park with his dog, or on his roof, staring into space, watching out for shooting spores.  Dan's background includes managing employees and inventory at food establishments.  now he is the engine that keeps the farm growing.

Brian Versek

BRIAN’S LIFE WAS INFILTRATED BY FUNGI IN 2012, AND HE’S MADE IT HIS ONGOING PASSION TO LEARN ALL HE CAN ABOUT CULTIVATION, FORAGING, MICROBIOLOGICAL LIFE, AND PERMACULTURE.  HE LOOKS WITH EXCITEMENT TOWARD THE NEXT PHASE OF HIS EXISTENCE, BEGINNING WITH THE LAUNCH OF MYCOPOLITAN AND CONTINUING ON TO SHARE THE BOUNDLESS CULINARY, NUTRITIONAL, MEDICINAL, REMEDIATIVE, AND SPIRITUAL BENEFITS THAT MUSHROOMS PROVIDE TO A LARGER POPULATION.   BRIAN STUDIED PSYCHOLOGY AT TEMPLE, BUT NOW SEEKS TO INTEGRATE HIS LOVE OF NATURE AND THE OUTDOORS WITH MYCOLOGY, ECOLOGY, AND FARMING TOWARD A TRUE PATH OF UNDERSTANDING.

Dave Novak

Mycopolitan was made possible by the financial support of Dave Novak, life-long friend of Tyler.  He also brings a level of business acumen to the company that helps keep the farm profitable as it grows. Dave attended Drexel and studied Business Administration.  Dave's got an unwavering poker face but can't help blushing every time he sees the mushrooms that spring from his investment.

Support Local Agriculture


Your purchase gives us an advance which we invest in our farm at the beginning of each season.  

Normally, a variable supply presents a sales challenge.  Your flexibility affords us an outlet when we grow too much of one thing and insures that we can keep our restaurant orders consistent, which is critical for a small farm.   

Most importantly, the Farm Share is how we share the fruits of our labor directly with you.  It gives as great satisfaction to pack your mushroom box, knowing we're providing you with a critical ingredient in your diet that, in the hands of a passionate cook, provides intense palate pleasure.
