Kat and Dan started growing their gourmet mushrooms in 2018, mentored by Max at Crystal Waters. When they saw that no-one else was producing unusual mushrooms, they saw a gap in the market and started their business."It's hard work but rewarding"says Kat"and we love growing for the community" Unlike commercial mushrooms that often
require chemical interventions, these are woodland mushrooms that thrive simply and chemical-free on pulverised native timber cuttings such as Spotted Gum and Blackbutt. A real favourite is their Black Pearl King Oyster that has deep brown caps and fruits in a cluster. Dan tells us " We love getting to sell straight to chefs and it's great to see them enjoying the produce we grow. We are passionate about local agriculture and farming in ways which have a positive environmental impact".
