Circular Farms (formerly Woodland Valley Mushrooms) Cropbox
This mushroom cultivation unit has a fully automated climate control system within a 40’ insulated shipping container. Each Cropbox can produce thousands of pounds of mushrooms using about 3 gallons of water daily.
The featured full environmental control allows you to monitor conditions such as temperature, humidity and CO2. Humidifiers are used to keep the humidity in the ideal range for growing mushrooms. We use air conditioning systems specifically designed for indoor mushroom growing to ensure their ideal environment to thrive. Every Cropbox includes access to our mobile application which allows the operator to adjust, track and monitor environmental conditions. With this you are able to keep record of each grow.
The mushroom unit design is highly adaptable and based on each grower’s unique growing goals and storage needs. We offer units that are designed for beginning to end mushroom production including a clean room, colonizing room and fruiting room. We also offer units that are just fruiting rooms, designed either to be supplied with pallets of mushroom fruiting bags or for growers who already have a clean room and are ready to enhance their mushroom fruiting capacity.
Species of mushrooms that can be grown include, but not limited to: Lion’s Mane (Hericium erinaceus), Oyster (Pleurotus ostreatus), Chestnut (Pholiota adiposa), Shiitake (Lentinula edodes), Golden Teacher (Psilocybe cubensis)
