Not only do we produce delicious oyster mushrooms, syrup and honey, we also offer our services for environmental consulting! In the spring of 2013, South Hill Forest Products began consulting the Nature Conservancy. Students form SHFP are in the process of creating trail brochures for the Eldridge Wilderness Preserve.
