TimberTop Shiitake Farm

shiitake house

This is the original green house / mushroom house structure that was used. We have now gone to two smaller units that are in the wooded area of the farm and closer to the stored mushroom logs. We found the smaller compact mushroom houses to be much easier to manage the environment of temperature and insect control.  We have chose to show the original set up because the design was good and can be used in other applications. The smaller units can be seen in the Snap Shot area of the web site.

It is heated by a out-door wood burner




  GMX fluid conditioners are used through out the farm. They offer a natural and safe way of treating hard water and reducing water tenion. They have been very successful in treating the water cooling system and with water absorption in the soak tanks
