Through our years of experience running a mushroom farm and hunting, we've learned a lot about what deer like.  The answer, far and above corn, vegetative food plots, forbes, and mast, is mushrooms.  Mushrooms provide the nutrition and minerals deer need for increased nursing, growth, and antlers, and are a favorite food. 

With your order comes a 5 lb box of wine cap starter spawn, along with detailed instructions sent to your email explaining how to create your wine cap bed.  Each 5 lb bag is enough to make an approximately 25 square foot bed.  Your location should be shaded without a lot of wind - look for a spot with a lot of moss growth.  

Creating a bed requires wood chips, straw, and a bag of mushroom spawn, and is a fairly easy process that will give your wildlife mushroom superfood for years to come.  Wood chips and straw can be easily acquired locally at a farm supply store, and we will supply the mushroom spawn needed.  It generally takes about 1 hour to assemble a 25 square foot bed, and no tree removal is required.  Depending on your climate, season, and location, mushrooms will first sprout in the fall or spring, and then continuously bloom with no watering or additional maintenance for the first year.  Every year after, mushrooms will continue to sprout as long as woodchips are added annually.  Mushroom beds can be made anytime as long as the ground is thawed and you have at least 60 days before your ground freezes.  If you have specific questions about your individual location, please contact us.
