Our mushrooms are grown by the Hearne family in Capel St Mary, Suffolk. 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.
It is sometimes assumed that you should discard the stem, but this is not necessary, you only need to trim the base of the stem. Because our mushrooms are organic, there is little need to spend time peeling the skin. Simply wipe over with a damp cloth rather than washing, since mushrooms are prone to water absorption. You should keep your mushrooms in the dark at a cool temperature. We recommend the bottom of your fridge, simply wrapped in a paper bag.
