Oyster Mushrooms

Versatile, Healthy, Simple.

Oyster Mushrooms are a great mushroom for beginners. The oyster mushroom starter pack gets you growing quickly with our fresh spawn strains bred over decades to suit NZ conditions. Best of all, you can be picking in as little as 2-4 weeks! They grow straight from the starter pack or on logs (eg poplar, hard woods, willow-avoid pine), straw, coffee waste and wood chips. If you have a special project, let us know for a custom quote and free info on strains to ensure the culture is fit for purpose. Kits are available for the beginner explaining how to keep the culture going. Larger kits are for regular crop rotation. All spawn is organic including bulk packs of pink or grey varieties for market supply

Happy Customers

“ ....with dowels I got from you just over a year ago, and the results have been fantastic, with 750 g to 1 kg of shiitake from 3 x 50 cm long logs on each soaking. Prof JB Auckland thanks for the advice. With 3 nights in the fridge the mushrooms started to grow an the 5th day. The first flush was sufficient for 3 meals. Flavour: excellent. Will now try the transfer method for a new culture and get the second flush started.
