Shiitake

Last week we welcomed the farm’s newest residents: Shiitake mushroom logs! We were able to purchase these logs from our friends over at Root Force Collective Farm who shut down their farm at the end of last season. The logs are dormant during the winter, but should provide us with a crop of delicious shiitake mushrooms for market during the spring and fall.
