The successful cultivation of mushrooms with this product will require specific skills and knowledge to effectively prepare a sterile environment for growing. A controlled, sterile space is key to preventing contamination. We highly recommend researching home laboratory preparation prior to purchase. 

We also recommend selecting USPS Priority Mail, USPS Priority Mail Express, UPS 3 Day Select, UPS 2nd Day Air, or UPS Next Day Air for our Inoculated Grain Spawn due to the sensitive nature of this product.

Price: $35.00


    5lb grain spawn that has been inoculated in a sterile environment. This product is not a finalized product. We recommend using .5 lb. of Inoculated Grain Spawn to 10 lbs. of substrate.

    Items typically ship within 1-3 business days. Some products may take up to 3 weeks.

    Chestnut mushrooms are not solely named for their lovely coloration, but their taste as well. Chestnuts offer an earthy, nutty, buttery flavor and meaty, crunchy texture. They are incredibly versatile, but their sturdiness makes them a scrumptious addition to soups, stews—anything you prepare low and slow, as their flavor and texture hold beautifully when slow-cooked. Both the caps and stems can be eaten, but we recommend breaking or slicing the bottom ½ inch or so off the bottom of the stem because the tips can become bitter and chewy— kind of how you would chop asparagus ends. Before adding them to your favorite recipe, clean away any dirt or debris with a dry brush vs. rinsing them with water.

    We recommend storing between 40-75 degrees Fahrenheit in a safe, dry location and using within 30 days of receiving.
