Gourmet Mushroom Farm
Gourmet Mushroom Farm
The World’s First Container Mushroom Farm
We are the first container farming company to offer a mushroom farm fully enclosed in a shipping container. This is a game-changing product that will revolutionize controlled environment agriculture.
FarmBox Foods has designed an efficient, sustainable, and versatile farm that is automated, transportable, and solar capable. We have carefully compiled everything you need to grow a wide variety of mushrooms inside a compact space.
The state-of-the-art GMF can grow up to 400 pounds of mushrooms per week, year-round. Up to 18 varieties and species of gourmet and medicinal mushrooms can grow simultaneously. Our super-efficient layout saves time and labor allowing the operator to maximize everything the GMF has to offer.
Each GMF unit is equipped with Agrowtek infrastructure which monitors and controls all climate parameters. Lighting, air exchange, carbon dioxide levels, humidity, and temperatures are all maintained at optimal levels.
Substrate Preparation and Sterilization
The GMF comes equipped with a batch mixer that handles all kinds of substrates. A built-in steam cabinet sterilizes the substrate and readies it for inoculation.
All critical components are controlled from the central computer. This includes thermostats, fans, timers, humidity, and lighting.
The GMF is laid out with the mushroom cultivation cycle in mind. We have drawn from our years of mushroom cultivation experience to make sure that labor and space are optimized in the GMF.
Laminar Flow Cabinet
The GMF lab has six feet of HEPA-filtered workspace. This provides the ideal working environment for inoculations and culture work.
There is ample space to incubate all substrate bags. Environmental conditions are closely maintained to optimize mycelial growth.
Watch your mushrooms thrive in an ideal growing environment. Temperature, humidity, lighting, and carbon dioxide levels are all monitored and controlled.
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!
