Hi everyone my name is Etienne Leblanc, I was born in Canada on March 30th 1995. I first started learning about mycology when I saw these beautiful pink oyster mushrooms, I just had to learn how to grow them! In June of 2016 I decided to learn to grow mushrooms from spores to fruits, as it was a unique and fun process I fell In Love with. I began practicing for my own culinary purposes, but came to find growing mushroom had become a passion and I needed to share it with the world. In March of 2018 I felt comfortable enough with my skills to start a business, with the help of my father. We engineered a fruiting chamber in order to bring the best quality from our mushrooms. I started growing a variety of mushrooms including; a different species of oyster mushrooms, shiitake and lion’s mane. Once we had consistent inventory, i began contacting local restaurants and businesses, and made a ton of wonderful connections with chefs and owners. I am enjoying the world of fungi so much and am very eager to learn, teach, and discover more!
