Little Acre is Brisbane’s only inner-city mushroom farm. We supply our high-quality and delicious gourmet mushrooms to restaurants and cafes in the local area. We use the latest technology and proven cultivation techniques so our farm can run reliably with the smallest footprint possible, all year round.

With our interests in science and agriculture we found mushroom cultivation to be the perfect pursuit. We are passionate about quality, local produce and sustainable agriculture. We believe innovative farming practices and small-scale local food production is the way of the future.

We want to share our passion for mushroom cultivation and get people excited about using these incredibly versatile and unique ingredients in their cooking.

I joined this class out of curiosity and left feeling inspired and much more informed. The class was well paced and covered all the basics in an engaging and comprehensive way. The teachers were generous with their knowledge and experience. The class was also very good value. You leave with a kit you made in class and another set of material to replicate at home. You also get access to all the information you learnt online. Highly recommend this for anyone with any curiosity about growing mushrooms.

Cool mix of interested people w/ various experience levels. Good mix of books of different sourcing and focus areas offered. Various physical examples of range of fungi. Like the teachers. Good manner bout them. Broad, open discussion. Good for introducing at beginners level but good, ranging discussion. Friendly without being shiny. Enabling and acknowledging of people's intelligence and ability to take their activities as far as suits them. Good venue, space and locality if food options or just checking out area. easy pub' trans' links.
