RMS Growers specializes in growing fresh mushrooms using natural log substrates to produce high quality products in a non-resource intensive manner. The logs are harvested with sustainable forestry practices in mind, inoculated with spawn from proven producers and left to peacefully colonize in a shaded outdoor environment until they become ready to "fruit". Our products and services include the following:
Fresh Mushrooms available through local farmers markets in Central Connecticut (will update market list in spring 2018) and wholesale only
Shiitake - available May through October
Oyster - late summer and fall
Lions Mane - randomly available
For folks that wish to grow and harvest mushrooms at home we offer several products including:
Fully prepared individual shiitake logs - fully colonized and ready to produce mushrooms (please see the gallery pictures). These logs will produce mushrooms for 3-4 years.
Fully prepared individual oyster logs - ready to produce mushrooms in the fall. These logs will produce mushrooms for several seasons.
Shiitake log packages which includes 6 logs (more or less available) and an onsite consultation - produce high quality fresh mushrooms virtually all season
