#var:page_name# cover

Attention to all our Forest Grown Shiitake Friends

Have an interest in the Forest Grown Shiitake mushroom process and maybe even taken a few classes? Come out of the classroom and have a real-life, hands-on experience.
Are you tracking?

We’ve entered our fourth season in this process and we’re at the point and are excited to, share our hard-learned knowledge and experience with our friends, our new friends, in fact, anyone willing listen and learn. Ourselves; we’ve attended multiple classroom and hands-on training sessions led by the Cornell team and others, and now, we want to share. We are the only Certified Naturally Grown mushroom grower in the state. Whether you’re just new, just curious, or are planning full scale Shiitake production, this might be the perfect way to spend a few hours outdoors on a Saturday.

We are on track now for this month and we’re all set for your company. Thanks to our Amish neighbors, we have over 400 sugar maple bolts that have been delivered. Our mushroom spawn delivery has been made.
Overhead cover, tools, heat, power, food, check, check, check!

In addition, we have all sorts of yummies (breakfast and lunch),we'll have safety glasses and gloves for everyone. Dress warm and bring some rubber boots. A burn barrel will be roaring and hot drinks will be available.
Work environment will be in a large, all weather heated tent.

For the ladies, a heated comfort station awaits you. For the gents; man up, guys, you'll get plenty of fresh country air.

We hope you’ll be able to come out, learn something new, take a tour, have a bite to eat, and enjoy some good conversation at the Tiny House Farm Augusta NY. All stages of the outdoor Shiitake mushroom bolt inoculation process will be covered. Everyone will have the chance to rotate through each work station and gain some insight into what it takes to grow Shiitake mushrooms for themselves. Farm tours will also occur as part of the workflow process.

For the more advanced, we are willing to discuss our outdoor Oyster, Red Wine Cap and Nameko mushrooms. Discussion of the benefits and requirements of the Certified Naturally Grown program available.

Second time participants will receive their “limited edition” Tiny House Farm t-shirt. Let us know in advance if you’re returning and needed T-shirt size.

GPS's, Google, and phones will easily track to our farm’s established address in the Oriskany Falls / Augusta NY (southern Oneida County) area (sitting between Rome, Vernon, and Oriskany Falls). Roadside parking is available.

We like to plan, so give us your name and phone number so we can establish a head count for gift logs and refreshments.
