Approaching mushroom farm to buy compost
    #585149 - 03/21/02 12:08 PM (15 years, 4 months ago)

There are a few mushroom farms near my home and I was curious if anyone here has ever approached a mushroom farm in their area to observe their set-up and also buy a small amount of compost for hobby cultivation of gourmet mushrooms??

Any tips?

Chances are they will be more than happy to take you on a small tour of their facilities. Most mushroom farms sell their (used) compost for gardeners. Make sure you tell them you want the compost to grow some of your own at home. Portabello's due great on the same compost as the button mushroom, if they ask what you are trying to grow.

Portabello/Portabella ARE button mushrooms, just larger, more mature fruits. They are Agaricus Bisporus.

Coprinus comatus (Shaggy Manes) are also excellent dung/compost loving mushrooms.

Yes, they are Button Mushrooms... but not often grown by most commercial growers. And the Ports are a common variety for the home grower to try.
