The Fun Gi

I have re enabled sales on my website. All products will be sprayed with ethanol before shipping and most work I do with mushroom products is done in front of a flow hood. When import restrictions have been lifted I will have a range of vegetable seeds available also, some high risk vegetable seeds like cucurbits and tomato families will not be able to be imported. No pickups will be allowed, no face to face contact.


Mad about Mushrooms

I have just finished work on my new lab and will have more stock available over the next few months. Pricing will be better and so will the variety. This will give people on lower incomes a chance to get started.

I am now completely devoted to mushrooms and rare mainly edible and medicinal seeds, this is now my only job, As a result I can now give realistic prices to all of my customers. I have enlarged my lab and storage areas for mushrooms and I only import seed in bulk to give my customers the best prices on the highest quality seed that I can find. More production area means I can produce more high quality mushroom spawn at much better pricing. Shortly I will also have liquid nitrogen storage available to store cultures indefinately. I only charge an hourly rate and taxes for my products and equipment used in production. 

I will be broadening my information and inspirational idea's to include other products not just mushrooms so check back in the coming months to see what I have added to my range.

I teach people to grow mushrooms but teach you how to do it on a budget. If I used totally organic products it would drive my prices out of reach for people on lower incomes. There are plenty of people using organic practices you can purchase from if you feel the need to go that way, all just as or more experienced than myself. I encourage you to learn some simple techniques so you can get by with what you have available locally. Look at the links at the bottom of this page for cheap supplies. I have stock of smaller amounts available if you don't want larger quantities laying around.

I am on a mission to increase the species of mushrooms in NZ for food forest and commercial uses, from species that make bio-fuel to insecticides. I can only do this with your support. All the species I have and will be importing have both MAF and EPA approval, some of the insect killing and biofuel making fungi will need to go through other approvals as well. I have over 10 new species planned for this year and more if finances allow. Help yourself and the planet, lets change the way we see and use fungi.
