Hey - I'm Tom, the creator, builder, and owner of the Oak and Spore mushroom farm.
I've built two highly profitable mushroom farms. The first in my 2-car garage at our residential property, and the second, a purpose built facility on a 4 hectare block of land tucked into the Canterbury countryside.
I've learnt a lot about farming mushrooms, lessons I can teach you!
We went from a 2-car garage from producing $100k+ to a small commercial farm producing $250k+.
Our financial goal for 2023 is $400k+!

- Bulk substrate
- Lats talk gypsum
Module 3 - Cost of Goods Sold (COGS)
Cost of goods sold, also knows as COGS, is an important part of any business. You need to know what ti cost to make each sale. From these costs you can calculate gross profit.

Growing mushrooms profitably isn't as easy as you might think, and it's easy to get something wrong and loose money, fast. A mistake in the beginning could mean disaster six months down the line. Get the foundations correct, so you know what to expect.
- Bag weight
- Wood/soy percent, or carbon nitrogen ratio
- Spawn percent
- Farmers market / retail punnet weight
- Kg production : M2 fruiting room space ratio
- Blocks per M2 of incubation ratio
- Expected wastage
- Sales tax
Module 5 - Income
Income is the driving force behind wanting to grow mushrooms. Without income, it simply becomes an expensive hobby. Take a look at he income potential from different avenues.
- Restaurant sales income
- Market sales income
- Retail sales income
- Grow block sales
- Spent substrate sales
- How to secure an easy $5000 client
Module 6 - Production requirements
If you have a goal set for grow ing mushrooms, it helps to get an idea of the production requirements needed to meet these goals.
- Price per KG (or lb)
- Production requirements
- Facility requirements
- Gross income
We buy bulk substrate bags from China, and land them at our door cheaper than it costs to buy directly from a manufacturer in the USA... About 20% cheaper...

A message from our farm to yours
The Oak and Spore mushroom farm has been operating since 2018, and we have learnt a lot on that time. Not only that, but we have grown each quarter since the start.
We have put this course together to help people who want to start their own farm, and want to see what we do on ours. It's not rocket science, it's simply growing and selling mushrooms. But each mistake you make is going to cost money, time, and will edge your farm closer to failure. Prevent failure from happening by learning by someone who's been there before.
I have made the mistakes, and so I hope you don't have to make those same mistakes.
