About this project
We will bring local organic Mushrooms to you!
Sublicious Farms is a group of farmers and their families committed to providing a sustainable organic farming platform for like-minded farmers throughout the world. Using our diverse and complimentary product line we hope to allow other farmers to collaborate and supply their communities with fresh produce year round. Ultimately local farming is about working with others in your community to provide consumers with a diverse offering of the freshest and healthiest produce using only environmentally friendly methods. This has traditionally been limited by local weather patterns and growing medium. We overcome these limitations by utilizing technology, innovative processes, and proprietary growing medium to optimize the growing pattern.
Check out this episode of the TV show Moveable Feast, featuring Sublicious Farms (starting at 04:10).
They also wrote a nice article on us:
Our current facility is a 6,000 square foot warehouse and contains two shipping containers that we converted into fruiting chambers. This has been a great location but in order to keep growing and supplying our local community with fresh organic gourmet mushrooms, we must expand!
Therefore, we are leasing a 1 acre plot from a local horse farm. Moving to this new location has several benefits which include: huge amounts of horse manure (a main ingredient in our mushroom substrate), access to heavy machinery which will facilitate and speed up production, and of course a lot of space. Additionally, there is an on-site space, with a kitchen, that can be used for events, like farmers markets, classes, art shows... Anything, that brings together like-minded people that are interested in local organics!
In order to tap the full potential of our new location, we need a little help and support. We need funds to erect a steel building that will be used as our production facility. The facility will be fully equipped and allow us to optimize production while also providing space for offices and a lab. We also need to purchase more containers to convert into fruiting chambers!!!
Your donations would mean a lot to us and help us to achieve a fully operational facility with unlimited possibilities!
With this facility as our first distribution center, we will be able to set up franchises all over the country, bringing local organics to You!
This is a video of the opening of our current location, our first Farm and Art Show.
On behalf of the whole Sublicious Farms family, we would like to thank you for your support! Dankeschön!

Risks and challenges
Reaching our funding goal would enable us to build this distribution center and optimize our production capabilities, which ultimately leads to growing amazing mushrooms from 4 fully converted fruiting chambers. This will be our foundation to build upon as we invest profits back into the business and expand to bring gourmet mushrooms to every community. We will distribute awards as soon as we are up and running which, with your help, we expect to occur in August 2016. However, during this journey, we might face unexpected challenges or delays as we create a perfectly structured and functional facility. Once everything is up and running we will kick off this new chapter with a Grand Opening, where we will have lots of incredible food, drinks, music, arts and crafts for all ages. Hopefully, this will take place in September of 2016, just in time for the season to start.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
