How does the kit work?

Growing mushrooms at home has never been simpiler:

  • Place the kit in a room with natural light

  • Cut a hole in the side
  • Spray with water
  • Sit back and watch the mushrooms grow

Our role:

  • We pasturise waste coffee, straw, and woodchip to remove any other fungi living on the growth medium
  • We then inncoluate the mixture with grey oyster mushroom spawn
  • The mixture is then incubated in our farm for two weeks until the mushroom spawn has colonised the mixture

Detailed instructions

  • Cut a hole in the box around the dotted line and then cut a ‘X’ in the plastic bag underneath.
  • Place the kit in a room with natural light
  • Using a spray bottle, water the kit once per day and wait 7-10 days for the mushrooms to grow
  • When the mushroom caps start to flatten, they are ready to pick - visit our Instagram and Facebook pages to see examples
  • Pick the mushrooms by twisting or cutting them where the stem meets the block
  • To maximise the growth of successive crops, remove the block from the cardboard box, soak in a bucket of water overnight, drain and return to the box.
  • Each kit produces approximately 500 – 600g of mushrooms over several crops

    Inedible

    Sorry don’t know what we done wrong but they grew perfectly. We picked them when we thought they were ready, they were about 2/3 inches across. But when cooked were like rubber. Haven’t given up we are trying again. Maybe we let them get to big?

    Phenomenal Fungi

    Just received my second mushroom kit from the brilliant Yorkshire mushroom emporium and looking forward to seeing the results in a week or two .
    My first kit , purchased before Christmas, more than exceeded my expectations .
    I have had two fantastic big harvests of surprisingly large mushrooms and it’s looking like I’m going to have another soon.
    The kits are so so easy to set up and look after and believe me the exotic mushrooms have fantastic flavour and are such good value for money. No more shop bought mushrooms for me .

    If you like exotic fungi don’t hesitate , get your kits on order and prepare for some fun .
    Oh yes and if you have any foodie friends get them a kit as a gift and you’ll have friends
