Birch Boys 'Moving Up' in the World

Jun 12, 2022Garrett Kopp

Birch Boys is moving up in the world. (Literally)

We’ve outgrown the basement. Again!

As of June, we have fully vacated the production & warehouse facility we’ve been operating at in the basement of 83 Park Street (below the Adirondack Store & Gallery) since 2018.

If you’ve shopped in-store and are worried about finding us - fear not! We did not go very far. We are literally less than 50 yards away, and soon we will be much more visible!

We are now occupying a beautiful above-ground building across the street! Our new address is 12 Cliff Avenue, Tupper Lake, NY. This building has the potential to be a forever home for our business.

For starters, it has (not one) but TWO built in loading docks, direct proximity to the post office, a beautiful interior open floor plan, a commercial kitchen / bar, a segmented, soundproof, and well venthilated production room, on site parking, and 3,700 square feet of space.This is a serious place to grow. A new habitat for this company.

After 7 years of company history working full time in various windowless basements - this has been a long time coming.

I already feel the Vitamin D. Or maybe I’ve just drunk a little too much Chaga?

Either the case, I also wanted to share that our new facility & harvesting lands are both being inspected this upcoming July as part of our USDA ORGANIC CERTIFICATION process.

We are in the process of becoming certified organic!

So perhaps it is needless to say, but there is a lot that our team is excited about. We’re ready to grow like Reishi during a lunar eclipse.

About The Author

Garrett Kopp is the 25 year old Chaga visionary and founder of Birch Boys, Inc., a company well-known for its assortment of teas, tinctures, and extracts from healing wild fungi. Kopp grew up in the Adirondack Mountains, where he naturally developed a broad passion for the wild northern forests of New York. He began to specialize and narrow this passion toward Chaga after a freak accident where he helped himself to a cup of what appeared to be iced tea in his Grandmother’s refrigerator, who had started harvesting Chaga and brewing it on her own amidst a battle with stage 4 pancreatic cancer. Soon thereafter, Kopp and his grandmother expanded their Chaga harvesting activities to local farmer's markets, where they discovered significant demand for the fungus and its powerful ability to help everyday people.

These entrepreneurial efforts landed Kopp acceptance into Clarkson University’s early entrance program, the Clarkson School, where he studied Engineering & Management and Innovation & Entrepreneurship. Several years and hundreds of research hours later, Kopp returned to his hometown. Having shipped to over 20,0000 individuals throughout all 50 states, Birch Boys has organically grown into a nationally recognized online brand . Kopp is proud to have built a vertically integrated supply chain, sustainably sourcing the fruits of tree-borne fungi from over 220,000 leased acres of leased private land in the Adirondack park, where it is carefully harvested by hand before being dried, processed, and extracted with love, at his fungi factory in none other than Tupper Lake, NY.

  • I have been using your chaga for years for my lung issues. It makes me almost fully functional. That said while those around me have suffered through many colds, flu and “covid”, I have had nothing beyond an occasional sniffle. Do you still sell whole reishi, if not what is prime time for harvest in the Adirondacks. I have forgotten
