  • Soak your log in non-chlorinated ice water and in 6-10 days harvest the world’s second-most popular mushroom.
  • Logs grow indoors like plants or outside in shade and will produce about every 2 months for 3 - 4 years.
  • You’ll get just a few shiitakes at first, with increasingly larger harvests. After about 2 ½ years production gradually tapers off.
  • Kits include log, instructions, and a recipe booklet.

Welcome to Lost Creek Mushroom Farm ~ Shiitake Mama

Lost Creek Mushroom Farm started in 1992 growing shiitake mushrooms and making all-natural, organic, hardwood shiitake log kits. We’re good at it. All our kits over 9” are unconditionally guaranteed to grow shiitakes. Thanks for your interest!

Mushrooms for Well Being Foundation: Mushrooms in Ghana Project

Lost Creek Mushroom Farm contributes a portion of sales to Mushrooms in Ghana, a project of the Mushrooms for Well Being Foundation. Doug and Sandra founded Mushrooms in Ghana Project in 2008 to help with economic development and food security in Ghana. The project is building a laboratory to make spawn (the mushroom seed material) to expand small-scale oyster mushroom industry throughout West Africa, and introducing Shiitake mushroom log production. Mushroom farmers, most of them women, are supporting their families and providing food for their communities. It’s working! Please contribute.
