Shiitake Mushroom Log
[Update March 2015] Once the snow and ice melts, our shiitake logs for 2015 will be available (estimated time of mid-late April). The logs for 2015 will be 2 year old logs (as opposed to the 1 year old logs we usually sell), and should have a great harvest this year as the mycelium has had more time to colonize the log and prepare for another round of fruiting. Price this year will be $30 per log compared to $35 per log in previous years.
