About us

The team of Mushroom Agent consists of people with different backgrounds, who share the same passion: Mushrooms!

The founders of Mushroom Agent met each other through Myco Hacklab Finland, a group of myco-enthusiasts in Finland, where we take an active role in supporting the Finnish mushroom growing scene.
Our interdisciplinary knowledge allows us to look at problems from different angles and develop a tailored  solution to solve your unique challenges.

Lorin has been working in the field of professional mushroom growing since 2011. In this time he has acquired a wide range of knowledge and inspired many people on his way. His fascination was handed down to him already as a small child by his parents, to thedegree that he rather would go mushroom hunting than go to the playground! This passion transformed to a profession when he started an internship in a mushroom research center in Austria. From there he worked his way up to Head of Production in the Mushroom Production Center Austria. He traveled around the globe to extend his mycological knowledge and if you meet him, it is obvious that his life revolves about fungi.


In many workshops and lectures he inspired people and leaves them with a fascination for mushrooms. At the moment he is working in his lab developing solutions and products for our customers.

Born in dry and hot Spain, Javier Mansilla did not discover the fascinating world of fungi until his first botanical classes when he was studying Forest Engineering. An interest became a passion and when he moved to Finland, that passion was manifested during interminable walks through the woods in search of edible mushrooms. Since he learnt that he could grow mushrooms at home, all his free time has gone to cultivation, cloning, study and experimentation with mushrooms.


The lack of professional equipment at the beginning made him an experienced low-tech mushroom grower. Skills that he loves to share with anyone who is interested to start growing mushrooms at home. In the mushroom season you will find him roaming the forests of Finland on the search for new strains and inspiration.


His unshakable motivation to try new methods and his deep passion for everything related to mushrooms is a constant inspiration for our team and everybody meeting him.
