About our mushroom products

All of our fruiting blocks and mushroom spawn are certified BC organic (KOGS#102), and are the very same products that we use on our own fresh mushroom farm in Kaslo, BC. As such, you have our assurance that all of our strains have been tested in various real-world growing environments, and meet the standards of a commercial mushroom farm. Besides the strains and products listed, please enquire if you have any specific fungal needs! We love custom cultivation jobs, and we are also able to offer further discounts to repeat customers and commercial clients.

Bears Head Mushrooms

Mildly sweet, complex taste

Checkmark

Checkmark

Airy and delicate, coral-like spines

Checkmark
A complex and assertive yet gentle taste, with a mild sweetness. Does well as a vegetarian substitute for crab, or other shellfish.

King Stropharia

stropharia rugosoannulata

King Stropharia Mushrooms

Can perennialize and fruit for years!

Checkmark

Huge burgundy caps

Checkmark

The best choice for outdoor garden growing

Checkmark
Similar to a portabella in size and texture, but with slightly softer flesh, and a flavour reminiscent of potatoes and red wine.
15-25 degrees C, in outdoor beds with ample moisture and shade. We usually get several natural flushes per year, following rainy periods or cooling temperatures.
Dependent on bed size and composition, but very good! We would expect at least several lbs per year from each of our 3’x10’ outdoor beds, and this species will perennialize and produce in the same location for years if occasionally topped-up with more fresh substrate.
Hardwood chips or sawdust, straw, leaf mulch, or other fibrous material. King Stropharia does not need a pasteurized substrate, but using fresh materials will always increase the chances of a successful grow. Supplementing your basic material is not needed or advised. Please see our King Stropharia instructions for more cultivation information!

As with any mushroom growing outdoors, correct identification is critical before consuming. 

See our instructions  for details, and when in doubt, send us a message to confirm your ID!

Shiitake

entinula edodes

Shiitake Mushrooms

Does well at low to mid temperatures

Checkmark

Small capped variety

Checkmark

Earthy and complex

Checkmark
Full of umami flavour, this mushroom has earned its reputation as one of the most prized edible mushroom varieties.
15-25 degrees C, 85% Relative Humidity for sawdust blocks. Kits and premade blocks pinning within one week, 1st harvest within two weeks. May have trouble initiating at higher temperatures without cold shock.

Hardwood chips or sawdust. Supplement with a protein-rich additive and pasteurize for best results.

Oak and hard maples are the best woods for shiitake, but of our native western hardwoods, birch and alder are decent alternatives. Our Wide-Range shiitake dowel spawn can be force-fruited by soaking colonized logs in cold water overnight; it shares the same temperature range as our sawdust blocks, while our Cold Weather strains fruits naturally in the Spring and Fall, and our Warm Weather strain fruits in (you guessed it!) warm weather.
