GREENHOUSES IN BARN
Only one section of the 8,000 square foot barn at Tweed Valley Farm is being used for the mushroom cultivation . There are presently four 8' X 8' greenhouses situated in this specially insulated section that are being used to control the temperature, lighting, humidity and air circulation for their proper growth. The Shiitaki mushrooms are being grown on sterilized logs and the Oyster mushrooms are grown in bags of sterilized medium. There is a pellet stove used for regular heating and a propane heater for when the temperatures get very low. The process takes constant monitoring of all necessary conditions to achieve maximum growth.
