    County 10 is featuring each of the four finalists and next up is Daniel Stewart of High Country Fungus (HCF). Below is more about this business.


    “Over the past 10 years Daniel has developed a passion for all things fungi. He spent studying engineering and physics in college and this background has driven Daniel to discover the world of mushroom materials. High Country Fungus has been around for a while, mainly producing edible mushrooms for local restaurants and farmers markets. It is now using the founder’s science background to grow sustainable packaging from mushrooms. That right, the concept is using mushrooms in everything from packaging to insulation. Daniel is excited to bring his expertise to Riverton, having recently relocated from Montana.”
