There is a resurgence of interest in mushroom production and consumption across the state of North Carolina. For the past 25 years, when farmers asked about growing mushrooms, they were usually referring to shiitake mushrooms grown on oak logs (Our new shiitake publication). But recently, inquiries are coming in on a wider variety of mushrooms including oyster, reishi, and truffles.
