In this instance, would issue refund in the form of a check.

Live Item Terms of Sale

  • Limitation of Liability: Pierre's Concession warrants to the extent of the purchase price only that the mini farms, grain spawn, plug spawn, and culture plates sold are as described on the label within recognized tolerances. No other warranty is given, expressed or implied, of (1) the suitability of spawn for purposes beyond those endorsed by our instructions or (2) against loss due to factors beyond our control. We cannot accept any responsibility for the many uncontrollable growing conditions and climate conditions (substrate preparation, environmental contaminants, temperature control, moisture control, etc.) that must be met to insure the success of your mushroom spawn.

  • Mini Farms: Pierre's Concession guarantees our mini farms products to perform within estimated parameters, provided that farms are cared for in accordance with provided instructions. If you encounter difficulty, contact Pierre's Concession promptly—often, we can help!

  • Plug Spawn: Pierre's Concession guarantees to our customer that the plug spawn will be viable upon receiving. We will replace any spawn stored and used according to this Plug Spawn Sale Agreement if the mushroom culture does not demonstrate vitality and purity during the expansion stage. If you experience problems with spawn, please contact us immediately. Due to the many environmental factors beyond our control, Pierre's Concession cannot guarantee the production of fruit bodies (mushrooms) from our plug spawn. (see Limitation of Liability above). Please be aware that the purchase of our Plug Spawn does not include an instructional booklet. These products are intended for knowledgeable cultivators—in purchasing these items, we assume you understand how to use them. For guidance with these products, please consult Radical Mycology by Peter Mccoy.

  • Hawaiian orders: due to import restrictions in the state of Hawaii, it is necessary to obtain a permit for the importation of live mushroom mycelium into the islands. This affects the sale of Pierre's Concession.

    • Customers in Hawaii wishing to purchase any of these products will need to first apply for and receive an Import Permit from the HSDA Plant Quarantine Branch.

    • The permit can be downloaded in Adobe Acrobat format online here. If you have further questions, you can contact Pierre's Concession or speak directly to Will Leon-Guerrero at the Hawaii State Department of Agriculture, 1428 S. King Street, Honolulu, HI 96814. Phone: (808) 832-0566.

  • Grain Spawn and Culture Plates:

    • All grain spawn and cultures are custom produced, and may take between 2–3 weeks to produce, depending on species and availability.

    • Cultures and grain spawn do not come with instructions, as it is expected that customers purchasing such items are sufficiently knowledgeable and proficient in those aspects of cultivation pertinent to their use. We advise a thorough familiarity with the information contained in the book Radical Mycology by Peter Mccoy for information about culture and grain spawn use.
