Oyster Mushrooms

Mushrooms were selected as Green Planet Vets’ primary crop due to the ease with which they can be grown and the relatively small space required to produce a sizeable crop. Oyster mushrooms were selected from an array of potential varieties because they are more easily produced, making them suitable for a beginning grower and because they are more commonly used than many of the more exotic varieties and thus have a broader appeal to consumers.

Green Planet Vets will also produce a variety of organic heirloom and specialty vegetables, including carrots, squash, garlic, cauliflower, and brussels sprouts. These will be grown outdoors in raised beds and certified organic. Considerable demand exists for organic foods, including vegetables, accompanied by premium prices for unique varieties.

Also known as “vegetable confetti,” microgreens are sometimes confused with sprouts — germinated seeds that are eaten root, seed and shoot. Microgreens, however, include a variety of edible immature greens, harvested with scissors less than a month after germination, when the plants are up to 2 inches tall.

What We Do

Green Planet Vets is proposed as a small scale, certified organic produce farm growing and selling oyster mushrooms and a unique variety of heirloom and specialty garden vegetables through local farmers’ markets, CSA’s (Community Supported Agriculture subscriptions) and direct to upscale restaurants. Green Planet Vets will be established as a Limited Liability Company (LLC) based in Warner Robbins, Georgia, owned and operated by Timothy Anderson.

Green Planet Vets will also produce a variety of organic heirloom and specialty vegetables, including carrots, squash, garlic, cauliflower, and brussels sprouts. These will be grown outdoors in raised beds and certified organic. Considerable demand exists for organic foods, including vegetables, accompanied by premium prices for unique varieties. Vegetable production will provide extra income for the farm from late spring through early fall and allow Tim to make productive use of time not devoted to mushroom production.
