There is a company called Fungi Perfecti that sells plug spawn that you drill into a log and cover with wax, and there is also sawdust spawn. The most common sawdust spawn mushroom being Stropharia roguso annulata. It is a heavy feeder though, and is best grown in straw or mulch. The problem with growing in this matter is that, to avoid wild mushrooms from growing in it, the straw/mulch must be washed in a diluted hydrogen peroxide solution or heated to a sterilizing extent, and on a business scale, this is a lot of work.
