A mushroom bolt is a log cut from a healthy living tree for the production of gourmet mushrooms.
Each log is 30-36 inches in length and 4-6 inches in diameter. All logs are cut from Sweetgum trees and produce mushrooms incredibly well. Depending on the diameter of the logs, and log management practices, logs can produce from 2.5-4.5 lbs of mushrooms per log over their lifespan and produce mushrooms for 2-4+ years. Sweetgum is also a good species for several types of Oyster, and Nameko mushrooms and show promise for others. Please note, logs are being sold as fresh cut logs and are NOT inoculated with spawn.
20 log minimum purchase. 400 log maximum purchase. $3 per log. Pickup only.
*Please allow a minimum of 4 weeks for from your time of order for logs to be cut and ready for pick up*
** Bolts are cut to order fresh from healthy living trees. Logs are handled carefully to prevent bark damage. Logs are kept out of direct sunlight and off the ground while waiting for pickup. Logs are harvested as a part of a sustainable agroforestry project. Sweet gum trees are thinned out of dense, highly competitive young growth stands to allow a wider diversity of trees to thrive with the reduced competition.**
