WHAT'S INCLUDED

Learn how to grow your very own gourmet oyster mushrooms from scratch with this convenient DIY Mini Farm bucket and mini course! This is the only one of its kind in Australia!

You'll be automatically enrolled in our short step-by-step video course to learn a simple method to repeat for your personal supply of delicious home-grown mushrooms. It takes just 30 minutes to prepare and you’ll have fresh mushrooms within weeks. We’re with you all the way and can’t wait to see you get started!

Inside you’ll find everything you need to get growing including:

  • Australian hardwood pellets
  • Certified Organic wheat bran
  • Gloves
  • 2 x Alcohol Wipes (for sanitising)
  • Hydrated lime (pH Booster for pasteurising)
  • 3 x filter patch stickers
  • a spray bottle for misting your mushroom kit with water
  • the Oyster Mushroom Spawn of your choice
  • a pre-drilled reusable plastic bucket and
  • lifetime access to our in-depth instructional video mini course online.

We also offer handy Mini Farm refill packs so you can easily rinse and repeat.

WHAT YOU'LL NEED

Have these household items on hand to assist with your mushroom bucket prep:

  • 700mL water (from the tap is fine)
  • Measuring jug
  • Large mixing bowl
  • Clean cloth
  • Stirring spoon
  • Scissors

GROWING CONDITIONS

Choosing the right spawn for you and your climate is key!

Your perfect match could be:

Snow White Oyster: Grows in 10°C to 24°C

The Snow White Oyster mushroom has an amazingly bright white appearance. Forming large white caps, this savoury oyster mushroom is a fantastic protein swap in meaty dishes. 

Warm White Oyster: Grows in 10°C to 30°C

The Warm White Oyster mushroom will be lighter in colour when grown at a warm temperature and a darker colour when grown at a cooler temperature. Forming dense bunches, this mushroom is a robust all-rounder.

Gold Oyster: Grows in 18°C to 30°C

Gold Oysters are beautiful and nutty. This tropical mushroom species is great tossed through a pasta or crisped up in a frying pan. Forming tight clusters of golden mushrooms, this variety will add some colour to your kitchen.

We recommend you stick to Oyster Mushrooms while using the Mushroom Mini Farm as they are best suited to this method and container. Check out our online mushroom growing workshop for how to grow other species of mushrooms.

Expect to grow: 2 harvests of mushrooms (300-400g in total)

Mushrooms are a living organism and it is very hard to predict exactly what you'll harvest! You’ll usually get two harvests, and the first crop will always be the biggest. Once the mushrooms have consumed the nutrients and water available in the substrate, it will stop producing mushrooms. It's time then to start the process again using your newly acquired knowledge and your reusable mushroom bucket!

Storage: If you're not going to start your Mini Farm straight away, store your packet of wheat bran and mushroom spawn in the fridge.

SKILL LEVEL: INTERMEDIATE

The Mini Farm is more involved than our ready-to-grow mushroom kits. It’s trickier as there’s more room for error, however the reward is knowing how to grow your own oyster mushrooms from start to finish forevermore!
