As discussed earlier generating a substrate for the growth of the mushroom crop is a critical first step in the mushroom culture for commercially growing mushrooms. A poorly produced compost will invariably mean disappointing yields, losses and jobs. So, good composting is the secret of growing good mushrooms in commercial quantities.
Because some materials used in this substrate are high in nutrients, Mountain Meadow takes care to keep these nutrients separated from the natural water resources because of cost and the environment. Mountain Meadow stresses the use of “best management practices” to protect the environment and minimize the farm’s impact on neighbors. Both industry and county inspectors have found that Mountain Meadow has a well-run operation for preparing substrate, an efficient growing process, orderliness of operation along with good housekeeping and waste management. We have pledged ourselves to continue our lead in the industry in this regard.
