Who would be the best company for master P.Ostreatus spawn?
    #2808240 - 06/19/04 05:34 AM (13 years, 11 days ago)

As the title states, I am in search of the best supplier for spawn for P.Ostreatus.
Primarily the Tropical, warmer weather variety.

Fungi Perfecti has come to mind but I would appreciate a few more options.

Jah Bless

I have decided to just go the SporeWorks route and buy some syringes.
Produce my own spawn.
I mailed quite a few companies and the usual slack-ass shit, no-one replies.

I don`t have time to hang around waiting to recieve mail.
Got spawn to make.

Anyone have comments positive or negeative on Sporeworks' edible cultures?

I`m also contacting sylvininc this morning to price their local spawn prices.
I`ll do a comparitive run of the lot against my current culture.

MushroomPeople produce bust-ass spawn for reasonable prices. They are very easy to work with and personable. They operate on The Farm in TN which is a self-sustaining commune.

Here's a clip from their shipping policy:

"Hawaii, Alaska, international orders: call for shipping and handling fees."

which I interpret to mean that they DO ship internationally.

FWIW, their shiitake spawn is incredible.

Off topic sort-of but...
I lived in Summertown TN for a few years. I am very familiar with "the farm", and had several friends that lived there. I had no idea that there was a spawn production facility there. But then again, I am sure the hippies did plenty of things I didn't know about...

Since they are from a place where I used to live, I am sure to look into their cultures in the future. Good people there on the farm, and plenty of good memories...

At one point they were a major supplier of shiitake in the Southeast. They ran that operation for ~12-15 years and kept extremely good books. They scaled their production from ~20,000 logs to ~1,000 logs. IINM the current production is for communal use only and is not sold. They now focus on spawn production and workshops. Their workshop literature which includes the compiled finance/yields info is very interesting.

I had no idea. I never even noticed any actual mushroom production there of any kind (edible or active), but I knew they had mushroom there...
Almost makes me wish I still lived there...
At least in TN, Summertown sucked.
In all I lived in Franklin, Columbia, Summertown, then Nashville. In that order. I plan to move back to the Nashville area. If I do I will make it a must to check out the farm again...

Now, this is OT...

I lived in Lebanon, Nashville, and the Tri-Cities. Nashville kicks fucking ass and I miss it dearly.

I know The farm offers workshops on alternative energy such as solar and wind as well as alternative sewage and structural materials. They have some cool buildings built primarily of mud cement and straw.
