Mycosource Inc. is the owner/operator of Fun Guy Farm, located 60 kms. from downtown Toronto.
Our two main focuses are the commercial production of fresh indoor/outdoor organic Shiitake and Oyster Mushrooms for sale in the Toronto market, and spawn production for sale to other growers. Other mushrooms such as Reishi (Ganoderma lucidum), Maitake (Grifola frondosa), and various Oyster species (Pleurotus spp.) are grown on a smaller scale during our research into their optimal growing conditions for our area and for our strong interest in the medicinal properties of mushrooms.
Fun Guy Farm is dedicated to sustainable organic agriculture and the production of the highest quality organic mushrooms.
We were Certified Organic by the Organic Crop Improvement Association (OCIA) from 1994 until 2005. We were in the process of being certified by ECO-CERT but paperwork, record-keeping, and fees made us reconsider. Currently we are using the same cultivation techniques and inputs as previously when we were certified but we are non-certified. Our mushrooms are not watered with municipal, chlorinated or flouridated water – they are watered with artesian spring water.
Fun Guy Farm is a supplier to commercial growers and hobby growers. We supply; grain spawn of various species for inoculating bags, bottles, or outdoor “beds” of substrate; and sawdust spawn of various species for log inoculation. For commercial growers we supply, on a contract basis, large quantities of spawn, ready-to-fruit substrates, and inoculated logs. We also supply equipment such as drills and bits, and can broker large specialized equipment purchases (such as dryers, slicers, mixers, bag and bottle filling machines etc.). We can also provide consulting services tailored to the individual needs of prospective commercial growers on a fee basis. In particular, we offer consulting for the design of cultivation facilities, selection of the most suitable mushroom strains. Our expertise can help to avoid costly mistakes in setting up a commercial production enterprise.
