ABOUT MY ORGANIC MUSHROOM GARDEN
Hi I am Beth Gayden the owner and operator of "Shrooms 2 Grow". I have been a wild mushroom hunter for years for edible gourmet and medicinal mushrooms. A few years back I had an over abundance of Chanterelle Mushrooms I had hunted in the Appalachian mountains and thought how nice it would be to find a market for these. Owning a micro farm in Franklin County North Carolina and wanting to have a home based self employed business that could benifit the local economy, health and well being of our future; I decided to start up a mushroom growing business. So 2 years ago; 2013, I started with Shiitake spawn from Field and Forest products and several kinds of oyster mushrooms inoculated into hard wood logs. Last year; 2014, I took a class with the NC department of Agriculture and NC A&T University on Shiitake mushroom production. Signing up with a program that promotes shiitake mushroom agriculture in this state, I am now at a full time production business. Marketing to private individuals, restaurants, and farmers markets.
