Shiitake Day, Tomorrow!

Tomorrow, April 14th, we are hosting a casual day of learning about Shiitake cultivation on our farm. We will start to gather at 1PM around the fire pit at Oak Shade Farm, 14455 Waterford Run Lane, Rixeyville VA.

From there, we will go on a walking tour of our mushroom spawning area where the first mushrooms of 2013 are emerging. Next, we will show you the shiitake log inoculation process. Finally, you will be invited to inoculate your own log to take home. You are welcome to stay and chat, purchase farm goods, or go off on your own afterward. It is a beautiful time to walk through our woods or just sit on our porch overlooking the mountains.

The cost to attend is $15 and it is $10 per log if you would like to take one home. We will have eggs, honey, candles and some crafted goods for sale as well. Unfortunately, we have no shiitake mushrooms to sell yet, but things look good for next week!

If you would like to RSVP (not required, but appreciated), give us a call at 540-937-5062.

Hope to see you there!
