Business Idea Competition = Mushrooms
    #922831 - 10/01/02 03:44 PM (14 years, 2 months ago)

Howdy all,

I'm entering a business idea competition for my school-- The idea revolves around working with local farmers, in which I use their facilities and retain a portion of profits to produce gourmet mushrooms in the local area.

This concept is definately in "BETA" form, and need all the advice I can get if this idea is "feasible" -- IE-- WORKS ON PAPER. I know a lot about growing mushrooms and think this idea would actually have a chance at succeding in my area, but need to work out logistics of the Business plan..

Does anyone have any advice (of course I've read many of the books regarding gourmet mushrooms include Stamets "Growing Gourmet... Mushrooms"..

I know this sounds really cheesy but am looking to get some feedback, thanks.

Very true, but what forum do you think it should go to? I'm perplexed as to where exactly it belongs.

"I know this sounds really cheesy"
not at all. sounds like a worthy project/business idea. do a search for sample business plans on the web?? there's a lot of there to show you what one should look like.
basically to see if your idea is feesalbe, figure out how much materials you'll need and their cost+ labor. then figure out how many shrooms x current market prices. if you can make a proft, go for it.

go visit a working mushroom farm. they'll probably give you more information then you'll need.
