Welcome to Mushroom Gourmet!

Since 1993 we have been supplying New Zealand with mushroom growing kits, and helping our customers understand how easy it is to grow mushrooms and edible fungi for Food, Health, Fun, and Extra Income. Mushroom Gourmet's unique kits let you grow indoors, outdoors, at home, in school or on a farm. They are carefully designed so you can see the process and get to grips with this great way of gardening. Mushroom Gourmet packs are the right size and strain for experimental indoor growing with clear information for your health and safety. The step by step approach from start to finish ensures you won't feel overwhelmed with too many mushrooms or feel left in the dark about how it all starts.

If you have an interest in the environment, we enjoy supporting local NZ suppliers of raw materials. Paying more for select NZ products and choosing a low carbon footprint we can avoid the use of foreign and industrial waste inputs such as GM soy and plantation pine.

Mushrooms and fungi have a tight relationship with plants and earth. Use them to create regerative opportunities and to grab carbon for enhancing your soil. All mushrooms can be grown outdoors with the right setup, but some are best grown indoors while you get to know them.

There's something for all skill levels — starting with beginner kits and gift packs and there's a course on setting up your own small business. For educators, there are single demo or class packs with full growing instructions and powerpoint or CD format information.

Food growing is great fun and growing mushrooms is one of nature's systems of soil production and carbon capture. More people growing local from local is good for the planet and good for community. Combining mushrooms with home grown protein has never been easier. Discover more in the Gift Pack with Thumb Drive book and extra information package for our NZ conditions.

Grow your own edible fungi to supplement your diet and income without using chemicals while recycling waste materials from on or off your property. The site is for NZ customers, but you may buy gifts from overseas for NZ residents and use Paypal to pay. The STARTER kits below are available at most garden centres all year round.

We offer full support and rapid reply to emails. All spawn is grown on natural or organic ingredients.
