Shiitake mushrooms boost the harvesting gap shares!

May 24, 2013 by General Administrator

This is the leanest time of year for veg, with winter stored crops coming to their end and new crops just beginning to come into production. This year we are fortunate to be able to include high value shiitake mushrooms in the share, grown on the wider farm by Tom Ingall, the grower manager for Canalside. They will feature in the share for three or four weeks to supplement the early season veg crops.

Members who were able to help shock the logs into production on May 4th will have an idea of how they are grown, but for anyone else, this article writtten by Tom a few years ago explains how the mushrooms are grown.
