10 Most Profitable Gourmet Mushrooms to Grow

Do you want to know more about the most profitable gourmet mushrooms to grow? Insider Monkey recently published an article about this topic giving you some very useful tips. As for me, I have a little farm with huge shephard dogs, hunter dogs, cats, chickens, ducklings, a mini cow and some rabbits. I sell eggs, milk, cheese and some meat sometimes. I do farming beacuse I want to know what I eat. As the saying tells us: you are what you eat. I firmly believe it’s worth investing a little farm, since people in the city have realized products coming from farms directly are much better and healthier.

Of course not every mushroom is so easy to grow, but what is true, it is worth considering it.

Now without a further ado let’s see what Insider Monkey has investigated for us. We have picked three  of most profitable gourmet mushrooms to grow.

The first one is Chanterelles. The reliable way of growing Chanterelles is yet to be discovered. There are several pieces of advice that can be followed, but they are mostly hit-and-miss. The reason for this is that Chanterelles prefer the proximity of tree roots in order to grow, but the exact nature of this relationship is still unknown and thus hard to replicate. Are you wondering what’s next on the list of most profitable gourmet mushrooms to grow? The second mushrooma are Morels. Morels are extremely hard mushrooms to grow commercially, although it can be done. The area has to be kept in the shade. It may take up to several years for them to be ready for human consumption. At last, but not least we should consider Reishi. Next on the list of most profitable gourmet mushrooms to grow is Reishi that is mostly consumed for its medicinal characteristics, so finding a buyer for them can prove to be difficult.
