The massive shop on his ranch property is now fully insulated and ready for winter with a high- quality heating system. Eric has many orders lined up, has hired his first full-time employee, and recently completed the first of many new cabinets builds.”
“Alicia is up and running performing research and development testing using her new commercial pelleting machine. With supplies for online sales in hand, the business is planning for a commercial launch in late December. Her building is fully insulated and ready for year-round production.“
“Daniel recently moved into a 3,000 square foot building in Riverton and has set up his research and development equipment. The business has been testing many types of mushroom material products and should be ready to market in early 2023. The building is now equipped with high quality lab equipment and also now has space for his culinary mushroom business to expand.“
