Specialty Mushrooms

The University of Missouri is encouraging farmers to experiment with a new crop- specialty mushrooms.
During economic hardships, like the one touching the agricultural industry, it is no secret one of the best ways to avoid financial turbulence is trying new crops. People are fickle so their tastes are constantly changing.
Fred Fry owns the Mushroom Farm near Montgomery City and specializes in exactly that- mushrooms. These little umbrellas line the walls of his wine cellar and will see $8 per pound when the crop is harvested.
There are only 6 farms like this in Missouri making the demand quite high. Growing mushrooms will not only make you extra money, but it is a great way to conserve and use logs. The most popular mushrooms in Missouri is the Ozark Forest Mushrooms.
