Our mushrooms are forest mushrooms, or primary feeders, and they grow on a substrate of oak shavings and other materials which mimic the nutrients found in nature in the forest. We find that our mushrooms have a growing presence at retail because consumers are looking for additional varieties in mushrooms and are more conscious about the origins of the products they eat. Organic is important to those seeking a certain level of confidence about the foods they eat. We've found little price resistance at retail. Our retail line is growing every year and we anticipate that this will continue as awareness of the benefits of eating mushrooms grows. Meg Hill Gourmet Mushrooms Director of Sales and Marketing

Hi Meg, I trust this finds you great. Am a mushroom farmer in Kenya. I specialize in organic Button Mushrooms(agaricus Bisphorus) and i produce 1000kgs of mushrooms after every 10 weeks. Our substrate is of wheat straw,specifically prepared to ensure that the quality is high and we maintain paramount hygiene in our incubators and farm houses. We are currently selling the button mushrooms @ $13 per kilo and our clients cant stop asking for more,this price is also friendly to our clients. Let me know whether you would be interested in a constant supply of these mushrooms and please do not hesitate to enquire on anything concerning our produce. Profound respects, Bancy Weston
