Occupation Apple Tree is experimenting with a new form of operation. It pays all expenses from a shush fund, which at the moment is $1000.00. Last week each picker got paid $600, equal pay for all involved, plus 100 dollars personnel expenses, gas etc. Drying has started also, five are working now, full time, and the drier has about 250 lbs of mushrooms in it. The Secret Slush Fund used to have $5000.00 in it but a series of mishaps and errors on management's decisions, it declined to $00.00. It was a economic crash. But out of the ashes we are back, equal pay, and a healthy Shush Fund with constant No Buying Days. Picture; pine mushrooms .
