Crops

Fungi are nature’s great recyclers, they break down organic waste like wood, straw and coffee grounds to recycle the nutrients, into mushrooms, some of which are edible.

We’re growing two types of edible mushroom Oyster and Shiitake.

Oyster

Oyster mushrooms are widely consumed around the globe. At FarmLab we have been growing Pink and Yellow Oysters on Straw and Blue-grey oysters on coffee grounds.

Yellow Oyster Pleurotus citrinopileatus

Yellow Oyster mushrooms are native to eastern Russia, northern China and Japan.
