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. As well as supplying commercially to restaurants we engage with our community to increase awareness about sustainable urban farming in our cities, offering workshops to teach you the easy way you can grow your own gourmet mushrooms at home!

This Masterclass was well organised, full of excellent, relevant information, structured and paced perfectly, and we went home with our own mushroom mini-farm and supplies for more. After the class, we were given access to a whole suite of resources, and the online content to reinforce and refresh our knowledge, and sources to access/purchase supplies and equipment to support our mushrooming interests. The teachers are well informed and experienced, entertaining and informative, and generous with their knowledge. I highly recommend the Mushroom Growing Masterclass by Mickey and Amy of Little Acre

Fantastic day. Very informative and interesting. Well presented. It wasn't too long or too short time period. Loved the little mushroom farms we went home with. Good size group of peoplenot too big. Friendly. Loved every moment. Thank you.

Lots of great information. Energy felt a little low and could have done more to safeguard the health and safety of attendees in regards to COVID (e.g. space participants out more and provide/offer masks specifically for the hands on portion). Class was also more content heavy than I expected with only a small portion being practical (perhaps just due to me not properly reading/understanding the course description and having the wrong expectation). Overall enjoyable and would recommend, but room for improvement.

My son and I attended a workshop with Mickey and Amy today and it was AWESOME. From the outset the venue was great (as an interior designer I am big on spaces), the welcome was warm and the workshop started bang on time. Mickey was a font of information on all things fungi and his delivery was interesting and clear. Most of us started as mushroom growing novices and left with the bravado of budding (pinning) aficionados. I wholeheartedly recommend this workshop to anyone with an interest in anything fungi or even those with a few spare hours on a Saturday, it is totally not time you will lament wasting. Love love loved!

I really enjoyed the class. I learned way more than I thought I would. The class had a fantastic balance of science and mushroom growing. Amy and Mickey have gone through all the trials and errors of growing a variety of mushrooms and show you the simplest way to grow mushrooms at home. I would highly recommend this class to anyone interested in growing food at home.
