À propos du projet

We want to produce natural, high quality food, through the local and sustainable use of native forest resources
Infrastructure Minimal Optimal
1. Purchase of a new farm
Our old farm is not big enough for our growing needs, so we now require a new property to upscale mushroom production a 1Ha forested farm with a neighbouring river that will give us the correct humidity and shade for growing mushrooms.
€ 7.500
2. Fruiting house with shading net for mushroom production.
We are going to build a wood structure with a green roof and mosquito net where we keep the logs when producing mushrooms to protect them from rain, slugs and insects.
€ 2.500
3. Native Forest Farm
We need around 1Ha forest for sustainable management of forest resources, to extract high quality oak and chestnut logs for mushroom production.
€ 6.500
4. Riverside trees plantation
We need dense canopy shade on the new farm for optimum mushroom growing conditions, so we will be planting more riverside tree species.
€ 500
5. Immersion Tanks
We need an immersion tank to dip our logs for 24 hours to stimulate mushroom production
€ 500
6. A small wood bridge over the river
We will build a small bridge over the Viacaba river for easier access to the farm.

Informations générales

Beginning in 2016, we have been growing mushrooms in a little forest in Asturias (North-west Spain). We mainly grow shiitake mushrooms using a traditional japanese method, based on the natural conidtions and substrates where mushrooms grow in nature. These mushrooms grow in high-humidity areas under the shade of the forest canopy. Mushrooms cultivated this way are high quality and sustainable.

Our shiitake mushrooms are inoculated in oak logs that have been obtained from a selective cull and pruning process on our own forest farms; careful wood extraction is fundamental to our philosophy of working in an environmentally-conscious manner- sustainable management of native forests increases their value and promote their conservation.

Our forest is not big enough to continue developing our project. We need new forest farm to continue our work. The aim of this crowdfunding campaign is to support part of the purchase of a new farm, as well as buildings necessary to the mushroom-growing process. This new farm will create two new jobs that will contribute to rural development based on a sustainable way of life.

Caractéristiques principales

Our mushrooms are the result of several lines of work:

  • Employing the forest natural enviroment we produce a healthy, organic and high quality product.
  • We promote local and small market instead of the mainstream market companies.
  • A sustainable management of the native forest to get our mushroom substrate give a new valuable resource to forest.
  • We promote the environmental education trough workshops, guided visits and mushroom courses.
  • We offer the posibility to “do it yourself” with our mushroom cultivation kits and tools.

Pourquoi est-ce important

Our philosophy is to promote environmental awareness and give value to native forest. We belive in a sustainable agrifood developing model in rural areas.

Our activity is mainly related with local and rural developement, however have bigger influence and general interest by defending a sustainable food production model and promote a healthy way of live and eating.
