We’ve been ankle deep in water at the farm all week, but there’s definitely been a few rainbows 🌈

Our water tanks are almost full (our little farm is entirely off grid so this is very exciting) and…. the wintery weather has awoken the Lion!!!!! 🦁

We’ll have a few Lions Mane ready for harvest in the morning, so if you get down to the Showground Markets early enough you might just be in luck!

We’ll also have plenty of the usual Oysters and also grow kits and grain spawn for those who want to grow their own mushrooms at home.

If you can’t make it to the markets we’ve just done a fresh drop to Mifsud's Fresh Fruit Barn this morning and for those on the south side we will be restocking Camilleri's Farm Market tomorrow 😃

Or if you don’t feel like cooking, you can head out into the beautiful Pioneer Valley and find our mushies on the menu at The Flackyard and The Gift Shed Cafe & Health Food finch hatton this weekend!

As always, thank you so much for your support, we are so grateful to have the opportunity to do what we love!!!

Oyster Mushroom Tom Kha Gai

This is such a delicious and healthy Thai sweet and sour soup. It’s super quick and easy to prepare plus all the ingredients grow so well in our climate!

Ingredients:
Oyster Mushrooms (Large box)
Galangal (approx. 3cm, finely diced or thinly sliced)
Lemongrass (1 Stalk, bruised with back of knife)
Kaffir Lime Leaves (4 leaves, finely chopped or left whole)
Tomatoes (2, quartered)
Lime (1, juiced)
Red Chilli’s (sliced, depends on desired level of spiciness!)
Coriander (good handful)
Coconut Cream (400ml tin)
Soy Sauce (1 tablespoon)
Sugar (1 teaspoon)

Method:
Remove the caps from the stems of the Oyster Mushrooms.
(Save the stems for future use in stocks or broths)
Add the Oyster Mushroom caps, Galangal, Lemongrass and Kaffir Lime Leaves to 1L of water and bring to the boil, then simmer for 10 minutes.
Stir through the Coconut Cream, Soy Sauce, Sugar, Tomatoes, Chilli’s and Lime Juice, cook for a further minute.
Serve with a scattering of Coriander

We make this as a vegetarian dish but I believe it’s traditionally made with chicken. The quantities above are what I use for a 2 person serving. You can either finely chop the spices and eat them, or leave them in larger chunks and remove them. Both ways work well.

This weather is a bit too wild for the markets this morning but luckily you can now find our mushrooms at Mifsud's Fresh Fruit Barn 🍄🍄🍄

Or if you’re in the Northern Beaches and would like some for this long weekend please let me know, we have plenty! We’re a little too flooded for farm gate pickups at the moment but we’re happy to drop off to you 😃

Also for anyone braving the rain and planning some gardening we have lots of Oyster Mushroom compost available too! $10 per sack or $20 for 60L.

Have an amazing weekend!

We spend so much time admiring these yellow oysters from the top, but the underside is equally stunning 😍😍😍

PS our mushies didn’t get the ‘long weekend’ memo and we have so many fruiting right now!

We’ll be at the Mackay Showground Markets tomorrow morning from 6.30 or you can come collect from our farm in Bucasia

Sending mush love to you and your families 🍄❤️

Woohoo! First harvest of the 2022 season!

First cab off the rank are these beautiful warm white oysters. These are one of our favourite species for crumbing, and there will definitely be some salt and pepper calamari style mushies on the cards this weekend!

We’ll have the pink oysters coming through in a few days and then pearls and yellows joining the mix late next week.

We won’t be at tomorrow’s markets but for those that have been patiently waiting send us a message and we’ll see what we can do. We will also be doing afternoon collections from our farm in Bucasia for those close by.

Thank you so much for your support (and patience whilst we waited for the temps to drop!). We’re so excited to be back supplying our community with nutritious, delicious and sustainably grown mushrooms!

Hello to our beautiful Whitsunday Mushroom community 🍄🍄🍄

Apologies for the social media absence, it’s been a nice little detox 😂

We’ve spent the past few months busy with maintenance and upgrades at our little farm, now it’s full steam ahead with production!

Our incubation room is absolutely jam packed and we are on track to begin harvesting shortly. We are so very excited to be back supplying our mushrooms to our amazing local community!

How good does this look - Salt & Pepper Oyster Mushrooms from the beautiful @matanaribali

We are massive fans of crumbed oyster mushrooms. Ours never actually make the table, we devour them as quickly as we cook them. You wouldn’t even know it’s not calamari!

There are so many ways to do it, if you google Crumbed Oyster Mushrooms you’ll see all the variations, from vegan/egg free, kfc style, deep fried/air fried and even tempura.

Roo is such a remarkable high-quality protein. Exceptional chefs know how to treat it so well it melts. This season’s roo dish has sung its own special song…and it’s got most everything to do with the lush velvety sauce. Native inspired red curry sauce. Developed and perfected over months, by Chef Mark Collings, it entertains the senses with ginger and pepperberry warmth, native lemongrass zing and vive, and a cultivated earthy umami from the fermented mushroom paste unlike anything you’ve ever experienced. It is wild. A credit to Mark’s thought-filled consideration and persistent innovation.
