Our chestnut mushrooms come from two British suppliers - G’s and the Hearne family.
G's was established in 1952 by Guy Shropshire and is still owned and operated by the second and third generations of the Shropshire family. Our mushrooms are grown on their Littleport Mushroom Farm in Cambridgeshire, which is world's only mushroom farm to hold the RSPB's 'Fair to Nature' biodiversity certification. The farm is powered by energy produced from their onsite bio-digester which is fuelled using by-products from other vegetable crops they grow. The Shropshires have planted over 2km of hedgerows on the farm, and 35% of the farm is set aside for wildlife habitats. There are multiple nature reserves on the farm which attract local and often endangered species, and provide important food sources for all sorts of wildlife during the winter.
Peter Hearne set up the business in 1962 and of his eight children, three work on the farm, and two have run or still run mushroom farms of their own. Damian and Patrick (2 of Peter’s sons) at one point considered moving into snail farming (yes snails!), but when the idea of organic growing came to them, it was the perfect idea for their 'shrooms.
Abel & Cole handles celery, celeriac, peanuts and nuts on site. Due to our packing process and re-use of boxes there is a risk of cross-contamination from these, and all other allergens.
