As a result of a lot of work, accumulation of practical experience, a number of field tests and intense business planning, in the early spring of 2014, we started our first biofarm for the production of Shiitake mushrooms grown on oak logs based on the original Japanese technology.We built it in the city of Banya, Karlovo - the geographic center of Bulgaria, at the foot of Stara Planina Mountain.In the following year, we established our company "BIO WAY" Ltd., registering our own trademark - "Fermi BIO WAY".We started with a relatively small resource, but with strong motivation and excellent knowledge in the field. We built our first farm, in accordance with the organic farming principles, so that we can offer the connoisseurs of environmentally friendly and healthy food, a truly delicious and valuable product.
The method by which we produce the woody bio-mushroom shiitake has been tested over the years and has been used in Japan for millennia. Our goal is to provide the Shiitake mushroom with conditions for development and growth that are as similar as closely possible as to those in their natural environment. The strict follow-up at all the stages of this process always ensures a quality and healthy end product. We achieve this result with uncompromising fulfillment of the two most important conditions: quality raw materials and precise observance of the technological process.
With the launch of our second BIO WAY Farm, we have achieved our first goal - we have built a bio-farm in which Shiitake mushrooms are grown throughout the year and their production is based on an industrial basis. This allowed us to continue on our way to our second goal of building a number of family bio-farms for Shiitake mushrooms growing on oak logs based on the original Japanese technology throughout the country. So, on the basis of the successful and practically verified know-how we have created and have at our disposal, we have developed and started to apply our own business model. We created the "Fermi BIO WAY" franchise system where, under the same brand, sharing know-how and strictly following the same, precisely defined standards, there are a number of stand-alone farms owned by different and separate individuals or legal entities (For more information see here).
Of course, all of the above mentioned was possible, thanks to our partners - the people who believed in "Fermi BIO WAY".
