Choosing our growers
"Most of the mushrooms in the major supermarkets are starving - they're hungry for food... it's sad. We don't sell those. We sell mushrooms that are tight, white and bright. They're heavy, they're dense and cook dry - they light up your tastebuds! "
- Wes Arnott

“It's hard work, but we love the challenge.”
Common and Specialty Mushrooms
The agarigus is the common white mushroom most people are familiar with and can be white or brown.
White agarigus mushrooms should be tight white and bright - heavy and dense. Mushrooms like these have been grown with attention to shelf life and eating quality. They are healthy, dry and barely weep when cooked. They taste delicious!
We sell the best brands in Melbourne, White Prince and Fresh Fields.
