Jerry Spencer's Profile

About

My name is Jerry Spencer I am a mushroom hunter/grower and have been for over 40 years. I started my mushroom journey when I lived in Germany back in 1971. As a kid I would always go out into the German woods to hunt for WWII things, but one day I was looking at a tree in the woods that had a lot of colorful things on it that I thought was flowers. When I got up to the the tree I seen that it was mushrooms (Oyster) yellow and pink. From that day forward when I was in the woods mushrooms was what I was looking for.
When I came home the the U.S.A (Colorado) I would go into the mountains and hunt mushrooms, thats when I found out that there are mushrooms that only grow at 10,000 feet or more. Then I started to learn how to grow mushrooms, so in school I took up Mycology and the rest is history. Now I grow Oyster Mushrooms, Lions Main, Shiitake, Enoki and others. I also do mushroom art with real dried mushrooms…
