Regular price Sale price £20.00
Tax included. Shipping calculated at checkout.

How does the kit work?

Our role:

  • We inoculate straw, woodchip and coffee with grey oyster mushroom spawn
  • The mixture is incubated in our farm for two weeks until the mushroom spawn has colonised the mixture

Your role

  • 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

      Slightly disappointing but fun

      Bought one at Harlow Carr on food day.
      Disappointing crop of maybe 7 or 8 medium sized mushrooms followed by a much smaller sized crop on 2nd flush.
      Nothing like the pictures but going to have another go 😊

      Great Birthday Gift

      Easy to order delivered on time. My daughter loves foraging for mushrooms this was a brilliant gift and amazing to watch them growing out of the box.

      Fantastic business

      Great business these lads have, saw them on the Hairy Bikers a couple of years ago.
      Bought a box at the Ilkley food festival for £20, had a bumper first crop but not much since.
      Can't say we've had 20 quids worth of mushrooms, but a bit of fun and hats off to the lads.
      Sent a kit to my son on Essex and nothing after 3 weeks, hey ho that's the gamble.

      Not Impressed

      The mushroom kit was a present from family and we opened it on arrival.
      Despite following the instructions carefully we have had no mushrooms at all to date. Not impressed!

      Delicious mushrooms that make the perfect gift

      This is such a good idea for people who love cooking! Would highly recommend!
