Organic Mushroom Compost
Bringing our farming practices full-circle, our Organic Shiitake mushroom compost not only ensures we have no waste product, but also allows us to produce a nutrient packed compost that can be reintroduced to our environment. In a way, composting is at the root of sustainable agriculture. Soil enrichment is one way we can ensure that our ecological footprint is minimized.
Our Organic Shiitake mushrooms are grown on plant based blocks manufactured in-house. After harvesting the Shiitake, the block is then pounded down and transported to our composting facility where it is turned and allowed to do what compost does best. Microbes, worms and other Organic material breaks down the mushroom and plant matter aerobically, creating carbon dioxide and heat, which can be seen as steam rising from our beautifully rich compost. The compost is turned to introduce more oxygen, ensuring a healthy product ready to introduce to the soil once again.
