GroCycle have perfected the art of growing mushrooms and selling them to local restaurants - why not do the same in your neighbourhood?  You can set up your mushroom farm in a relatively small area with only 30m2 needed to grow up to 50kg of mushrooms per week.

The GroCycle website has a very detailed article explaining the basics of mushroom farming to give you a good idea of what you will need to start your home-based mushroom business. If you decide that this could be a potential business idea for you and want to take it further, take their low cost course on mushroom farming where they take you step by step through everything you need to do to get started (at the time of writing it was only 67 pounds).

Some key points from their website:

  • You don´t  need land to grow mushrooms - you can use any indoor space.
  • 10m2 growing space will take about 12 hours of work, a week, to grow 10kg of mushrooms.
  • Oyster and Shitake mushrooms are easy to grow, grow fast and are sold at a high price.
  • You can grow a crop of oyster mushrooms in 3-4 weeks.
  • A fruiting (growing) room can be set up with $1000.

So there is a relatively low start up cost, it is low tech,  quick to produce results and in a niche market. You can sell to people looking for local, fresh, organic produce. 

Income Potential

GroCycle recommend contacting local restaurants, health food stores or vegetable box delivery schemes to sell your mushrooms. Or you could sell them directly to the public at a local farmers market.  What price could you get for your mushrooms?

"£10 (US$13) per kg and Shiitake at £15 (US$19) per kg...In Australia, Oysters fetch an impressive AU$ 40 (US$ 29) per kg!"

They offer a lot of information on their website and appear to have a comprehensive course that will show you everything you need to make your mushroom farm a success.  You can start your own mushroom business whether you are living on a farm or in the middle of a city.  Find out more at:
