Grow mushrooms and Spread the Spore!
North Spore produces 100% of its spawn at its facility in Westbrook, Maine. Spawn is used by mushroom growers much like seeds are used by gardeners and vegetable farmers. It is the genetic material used to grow mushrooms.
Spawn comes in three distinct styles:
Plug Spawn - Great for first-time mushroom log growers. Used for small projects. 1-10 logs.
Sawdust Spawn - Used for larger mushroom log projects, or by those wanting to inoculate logs every year. Used for small to large enthusiast or commercial projects. Best for inoculating 10 or more logs. *You need an Inoculation Tool to use Sawdust Spawn. For larger projects, you may want to purchase an Angle Grinder Adapter and specialized 12mm drill bit! Or save money by getting our 'Trio of Tools' deal!
Grain Spawn - This is used for outdoor straw or wood chip beds or commercial indoor production using sawdust or straw. You do not use grain spawn for log inoculation.
