DIETZ FARM MUSHROOMSSequim Washington
Lowell and Audree Dietz do Carpentry in Sequim.
Lowell's hobby is mushroom cultivation.
This has become a source of income.
The photo on the left is a plastic column of barley straw
that has been shredded, cooked and inoculated with
grain spawn. The mushroom is Pleurotus columbinus
also known as "Blue Cap Oyster Mushroom".
This mushroom is possibly the worlds best pizza mushroom.
This site contains several pages to help beginning mushroom cultivators:
Grow Mushrooms At Home! has mushroom recipes and information about an amateur mushroom cultivators' group.
The Pink Oyster Mushroom page has instructions for growing mushrooms on growing kits you purchased.
How to make mushroom growing straw blocks is a page for cultivators who want to make their own growing kits.
You may view or print the one page sheet MUSHROOM KIT FAQS that we used at the Pacific Northwest Mushroom Festival in Lacey.
If you need dehydrated mushrooms and can't dry them yourself, we can deliver fresh mushrooms to a processor.
You may purchase them from the processor. There are two businesses in Sequim with inspected kitchens and
processors licenses who are willing to do this. Current demand for fresh mushrooms exceeds our ability to supply them.
We hope to increase production so we can sell mushrooms retail to the public. We have growing kits for sale:
Blue cap oyster, Tree Oyster, King Oyster, Mushroom of Love, Phoenix Oyster mushroom.
