I'd start out by doing a search on some outdoor cultivation teks.  Read over them until you feel you could teach it to someone by memory.  Then select any strain you want, they're all cubensis and all generally easy to grow.  Seeing as you're growing outdoors you might want to try your hand at Pan Cyans or other nature loving species down the road.  Read up on pasteurizing the poo (there's teks for just about everything).  And lastly, come here when you have a question or are stuck on a step, ask the board...I've always had fast response time from very experienced people.  Welcome to the Shroomery!  :crazy2:

Why only outdoors?

You've got all the main stuff. Now all you need is a PC and some quart jars, some vermiculite and some peat moss. There are many teks and FAQs here on the site, I suggest you click the FAQ link at the top of the page and start reading about bulk, spawning, and liquid cultures. You'll want to use a mix of about 45% millet, 40% milo, and 15% rye, then spawn that to horse poo. You could use just millet, just milo, or a mix of the two of those too, but I would add in some rye (check my How I Do Grain link for reasons why and how to prep both, WBS is mainly milo and millet)

You'll want weathered and dried horse poo thats been leached of the amonia and smells like nothing, follow a tek for pasteurizing it (grain gets sterilized in a PC, poo gets pasteurized) then you can mix in jars of colonized grain into the pasteurized poo, let that fully colonize. Then get yourself some peat and verm (chunky style) and mix about half and half, then add about 5% oyster shell flour, sterilize or pasteurize the casing mix (no nutes so anything works for casing mix) and when the poo is fully colonized, add the casing layer to the top, reincubate until mycelium starts poking up through the layer, then expose to fresh air, light, and a small temperature drop if possible, and do it while maintaining high humidity and your good to go.

Cow poo works ok, but you want the fluffy fiberous texture of horse poo with all that straw in its shit..I'd stick with straight horse poo at first, and probably for good, but you could maybe add a little cow poo (anywhere from 5-50%) to try and make sure the shrooms get all the nutes they like, but to find the perfect ratio for you would take some experimenting on your end and for now you'll want to just stick with the horse poo spawned from grain.

I'd also look into outdoor things, and making alot of outdoor piles since you have a whole farm but you can certainly use all of your stuff for indoor cultivation.

"life is like a drop of rain getting closer and closer to falling into a lake, and then when you hit the lake there is no more rain drop, only the lake."

I agree with scatmanrav. I live next to a horse farm and so I had to try and spawn horse poo. Now I would never try it any other way. The humidification is automatic and the shrooms grow HUGE!! I have had excellent luck with the Amazonian Cubensis, but with what you have you might as well experiment ALOT. Good luck and have fun.
