East Gwillimbury-Based Mushroom Farm Sets Sights on Becoming Biggest Operation of its Kind in Canada

Sharon Mushroom Farm in York RegionThe farm currently has 20 rooms that grow mushrooms year round. Each room has rows of mushrooms as far as the eye can see along with that telltale odor. Marsonia said it takes 16 days for him to grow a mushroom.  Every room has 13 cycles throughout the year. Bottom line is, that’s a boatload of mushrooms.
