Southwest Mushroom Cultivators
Southwest Mushroom Cultivators is located in Santa Fe, New Mexico. Farmer Stephanie Dukette started growing mushrooms 15 years ago after taking a course by Paul Stamets. She began growing oyster mushrooms, then moved onto the more challenging shiitake. She uses local inputs such as fallen tree sawdust. On her property in central Santa Fe, Stephanie has built a cook room for sterilizing and inoculation, an incubation room, a prefruting room, two fruiting rooms, and a walk in refrigerator.
Southwest Mushroom Cultivators has been supplying Squash Blossom since 2016.
