What kind of mushrooms is good for me?

What type of mushrooms is good for me? First, answer these three questions:


1. Are you going to grow them for your own kitchen?
If you are planning to use your mushrooms mostly for your own gourmet cooking, request samples of all the available mushrooms in our laboratory, taste them, and decide which one pleases your taste buds.


2. Are you planning to sell them or make money from it?
Check out our market survey, go to your local restaurants, grocery stores and health food stores and ask them what they would buy. Decide then according to the highest demand. Also, contact us for suggestions for medicinal use of these mushrooms, and potential buyers' contact.


3. What are the weather conditions where you live?
Do you live at the coastal plains, in the mountains, or in the central North Carolina? Our experts will help you determine which species and strains will do well in your particular environment.
