HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - How does a green recycling company give rise to an USDA certified organic mushroom farm? The organic material from our recycling operation makes for fine compost, which happens to be perfect for growing mushrooms! Thus Small Kine Farm was born. Not only are we the only Portabella farm in Hawai'i, but by using our own compost and a high-tech pasteurization and growing process, we have been able to produce safe, high-quality mushrooms with better taste, texture and a longer shelf life than Mainland competitors…they even LOOK better.
Our Keiki Portabella mushrooms (more commonly known as Crimini mushrooms) have a lighter flavor and crisper texture. Our large Portabella mushrooms are a minimum of 4" in diameter and rich and robust in flavor.
We offer competitive prices and on-site weekly delivery on Mondays and Fridays, and we will work with you to determine the best schedule for your business needs. We want to make sure that you are happy with your purchase and guarantee the quality of our product. Our goal is to develop long-term partnerships with our customers and we welcome your feedback on how to make Small Kine Farm a healthy fit for your business or community needs.
Small Kine Farm sells its organic mushroom compost (also known as spent mushroom substrate or SMS) to farmers, gardeners and other agricultural companies. This nutrient-rich by-product of mushroom farming is widely used on the U.S. Mainland for gardening, vegetable production and weed control.
You can buy them from Kokua Market, Pearlridge farmers market, Mililani farmers market, Whole Foods Market, and Down to Earth in Kailua
