Log-Grown Shiitake

  • Friday, November 9, 2018, 9:00 AM - 11:00 AM

Join Cornell Small Farms Agroforestry Specialist Steve Gabriel to visit Josh Smith's first-year log shiitake commercial operation to see the set up and needs for developing a small enterprise. We will discuss managing the woods, bolt harvesting, & creating a good "laying yard" for shiitake logs to fruit. Log-Grown Shiitake are a scalable farm enterprise that can provide a good income stream from the woods.
