We have carefully compiled everything you need to grow a wide variety of mushrooms inside a compact space. The possibilities of container farming are endless. Experience farm cultivation and innovation like never before.
SMALL FOOTPRINT, HUGE YIELD
DESIGNED FOR COMMERCIAL SCALE
The state-of-the-art GMF can grow more than 400 pounds of mushrooms per week, year-round. Up to 18 varieties and species of gourmet and medicinal mushrooms can grow simultaneously, including oysters, shiitake, reishi, lion’s mane, chestnut and king trumpets. Our super-efficient layout saves time and labor, allowing the operator to maximize everything the GMF has to offer.
We have brought the best of innovation and automation to our Gourmet Mushroom Farm. The 320-square-foot GMF container takes advantage of every single inch of the shipping container to generate high yields of gourmet mushrooms in a small space. The container design allows it to be controlled and operated by a single person. Our workflow and training will enable your company to scale its mushroom production quickly and efficiently.
Each GMF unit is equipped with Agrowtek infrastructure which monitors and controls all climate parameters: Lighting, air exchange, carbon dioxide levels, humidity, and temperature.
SUBSTRATE PREP & PASTEURIZATION
The GMF comes equipped with a batch mixer that handles all kinds of substrates. A built-in steam cabinet pasteurizes the substrate and readies it for inoculation.
Monitor and control the farm’s climatic conditions from any smartphone or computer. Alerts can be set up in case any issues arise.
There is ample space to incubate all substrate bags. Environmental conditions are closely maintained to optimize mycelial growth.
LAMINAR FLOW CABINET
The GMF lab has six feet of HEPA-filtered workspace. This provides the ideal working environment for inoculations and culture work.
Watch your mushrooms thrive in an ideal growing environment. Temperature, humidity, lighting, and carbon dioxide levels are all monitored and controlled.
GROW WITHOUT PESTICIDES
Even though mushrooms are on the Clean 15 list, that doesn’t mean that they are actually pesticide free! A study done by the FDA shows that 26% of imported mushrooms had more than the allowable amount of pesticides, even thiabendazole, a carcinogen and a developmental and reproductive toxin. Our unique approach to mushroom farming allows you to grow many mushroom varieties, all without using any pesticides whatsoever!
