Cheapest spores
    #3617321 - 01/12/05 12:02 PM (12 years, 4 months ago)

I am wondering if there is any money in selling fresh mushrooms to high end mushrooms and what particular chain restraunt uses them. Plus I would also like to know what vendor sells the cheapest spores. I need to have a bogus grow to make my mom happy and a real grow of the good ones but I am seriously strapped for funds at this point in time. thanks for taking time to read this post

your best bet at making good money may be to sell at a local farmer's market.

for spores, ask in the marketplace.

Farmers markets huh, I guess that would be the simpliest. I was more interested in supplying a restraunt or two, but I guess it would easier to just unload fresh shrooms at the market.

I have a friend who is a farmer with a farm market. He wants to try shiitake. Be kinda cool to grow a large scale farm.

I think its awesome you're having legit mushrooms. Here's my advice if the farmers market thing doesn't work out. Let your fingers do the walking lol. Just call all the upscale restaurants in your area and pitch your mushrooms, I guarantee they will be interested if you have reasonable prices. Italian, French, Thai, etc, all make great buyers. I think you'll find that its a great hobyy and profitable, even if you're only starting it to make your mom happy. Don't forget to give your mom some mushrooms for being your sponsor if that's the case. You should pay her back too once you start selling to the restaruants and then treat her to a nice meal there. Good luck man!

And there is where God lives, where the dead live, the spirits and the saints, a world where everything has already happened and everything is known. That world talks. It has a language of its own. I report what it says. The sacred mushroom takes me by the hand and brings me to the world where everything is known. It is they, the sacred mushrooms, that speak in a way I can understand. I ask them and they answer me. When I return from the trip that I have taken with them, I tell what they have told me and what they have shown me."

Thanks alot you all seem like you have some experience with selling them. Hopefully mom will never suspect a thing but is it feasible to actually have a small grow that would beat out comercial companies? He was talking about having reasonable prices. I really don't think this can be achieved. Nevertheless, couldn't I age those asian mushrooms ? shittakes? and sell them to the restraunts for big prices. I watched on history or maybe food channel a long time ago about private collector buying a really old one for 20,000 dollars. Maybe I would have to go online and ship them to china. I really don't know but what are some business's I should purchase from so I can compete with big business?

grow the normal mushrooms to please ur mother and if u need money, sell the funny mushrooms, itd be easier to find buyers and probably more profitable.

thats if ur growing them at the same time or is ur plan to first grow non-pysc mushrooms and than psychadelic mushrooms with the money made from selling ur shitalkies?

the question is: do any of the sponsors have prints from $20,000 shrooms?

My suggestion is to do like I do... just with another species! :smile:

I grow oyster mushrooms, but I don't grow mushrooms for sale! I only sell spores, as the spore production allows you to NOT own a farm, and NOT have to worry about FDA and LAWSUITS. FDA can't touch you, but they can make your life a living hell! Organic mushrooms are not noticed as food, they are still herbs to the FDA.

You said it yourself... you are looking for some cheap spores... Pay some big bucks, and grow/sell some cheap spores! You will have just opened a market for yourself.

The general idea should be that you stay away from any "Marketed" mushrooms, as you will be no match for the industry. Try some of the more rare/loved mushrooms.

Chicken Mushrooms actually taste like chicken!
Some examples... there are many on google, search for specific names and "Spores" and "Buy"!

YES , I even know someone who has a very lucrative bussiness selling edible mushies to the food industry , mostly hi end expensive restaurants . He was way lucky though and got in due to having two family members who were chefs at a couple of places , then after awhile word of mouth took his biz to much better places  :thumbup:

The trick for someone in the cold is .... find some places first , see what species in particular they want and go from there .

The cheapest spores you can get .............hmmmmmmmmmm the ones you can mooch  :wink: Make some posts in the edible gourmet area and marketplace , I would say try cloning , but most mushies sit on shelves too long and chances of you getting them to take hold are slim next to none . Clones need to be harvested from a mushie no older than 48 hrs after being picked .
But if serious about a biz(a legit one) ... stay away from ones that can cost you your biz . And no matter what wait till you move outta moms place ... you owe that to her  :thumbup:

GOOD LUCK

Being a little guy, the most that might happen is the market that you sell to might blame you for some-one getting sick, so they don't look bad! Then, they would just stop buying from you.

Poke around. My little brother found our contracts in the "Business to Business" part of ebay. Similar to normal ebay, but it has business stuff... (Injection Molding Machines: $450,000, Tooling Contracts: $85,000, Whole Businesses: $1,850,000...)
