2019: Currently we are cultivating 4 varieties of oyster mushrooms! Pink oysters (Pleurotus salmoneostramineus), Golden oysters (Pleurotus citrinopileatus) White oysters (Pleurotus ostreatus variety Elm A.) and our main crop: Gray oysters (Pleurotus ostreatus).
Here’s a photo taken this last week just outside our mushroom house.
In addition to the oysters we are growing wine caps, also known as garden giants or king stropharia. These mushrooms are grown outdoors in beds of inoculated wood chips. They are super tasty and firm and add a nice variety to our offerings. The flavor is very different from oysters..sweet and earthy with a taste of potatoes, weird, right!? But totally delicious 🙂
