Inmates producing 10,000 lbs. of mushrooms daily

Mushroom plant with Honor Farm staff producing 10,000 pounds daily
April 05, 2005

SHOSHONI, Wyo. (AP) -- A plant built and largely staffed by Wyoming Honor Farm inmates is now producing 10,000 pounds of white button mushrooms daily.

Production of larger portabella and portablanco mushrooms has also begun at Wind River Mushrooms, according to the plant's manager, Rick Wade.

Mushrooms are sold to the public in quantities from 1 to 1,000 pounds. While several Riverton restaurants are buying all their mushrooms from the plant, most are shipped out-of-state.

Wade said recently that the $4 million plant got off to a rocky start and that thousands of dollars' worth of mushrooms were lost because of harvesting inefficiency.

But now the plant is producing more mushrooms than one shift of 60 inmates can harvest. So 20 civilians have been hired for a night shift.

The plant is now operating round-the-clock, seven days a week.

i can see one of those 'night shift civilians' accidentally introducing some active spores into the plant.
