White Mountain Mushrooms was founded by long-time fungiphiles, Maine natives, and brothers, Jimmie and Parker Veitch, in the summer of 2014. Both have studied extensively the microscopic and macroscopic identification of fungi, fungi’s role in ecology, and plant pathology. Parker's degree is in Environmental Management with a concentration in toxicology; Jimmie's future plan is to earn a position as a Professor of Mycology. Combined, the "Mushroom Guys," as they are affectionately known locally, have over 15 years of mushroom foraging and identification experience. They have led over 100 public and private forays, including mushroom walks for the Greater Lovell Land Trust, Lakes Environmental Association, New Hampshire Mushroom Company, and Pickards Mountain Eco-institute. In addition, they make formal presentations to various organizations. Before returning to Maine after several years away both overseas and in the southern US, they founded the North Carolina Mushroom Group and the Piedmont Mycological Society. Most recently, they formed the White Mountain Mycological Society.
