The cultivation of shiitake mushrooms offers farmers and woodlot owners a good opportunity to utilize their forested lands while turning a profit. Startup costs are low, and previous Cornell research indicates that profitability can be achieved in the second or third year of dedicated production. Any resident of New York State or who farms in New York and is growing commercially, starting a new enterprise, or considering commercial production is welcome to attend.
The workshop content will cover aspects of production important to selling mushrooms in New York, including safety, sanitation, marketing, and regulations.
