This study aims to discover the characteristics, cost, profit, and feasibility of oyster mushroom farming in highlands, specifically in Sleman and Temanggung Regency, Indonesia. Location determination was done purposively because the two regencies are in highlands. A snowball method was utilized to determine the respondents consisting of 32 oyster mushroom farmers. A descriptive method and t-test were employed to analyze the differences in the average cost, income, profit, and benefit-cost of farming. The results revealed that there were differences in the input and process technology characteristics of oyster mushroom farming in both regencies, leading to the differences in the profit and feasibility. However, there was no difference in the costs incurred between the two farming areas. The profit and feasibility of oyster mushroom farming in Temanggung were higher than those in Sleman. Nonetheless, the cost of farming in both regencies was relatively the same. Hence, it is necessary to increase the potential of oyster mushroom farmers in Sleman and strengthen the farmers in Temanggung so that the quality and productivity of oyster mushrooms in the two regencies can be stable and increase. Therefore, it will have an impact on the income and profit of farmers.
