We have tons of juniper and old juniper chips. Are there any edible mushrooms which can be cultivated on them?

Do you ever find local mushrooms growing on the trees. If so and they are desirable, I would start there and see if you can cultivated them. Otherwise, you might try other coniferous-loving species, which I discuss in this thread.

Thank you, Peter. I've never seen mushrooms growing on them.
