David & Brigett Proudmore- Gidgegannup
We run a small business growing and selling several species of exotic mushrooms as well as grow your own gourmet fungi kits.
I developed an interest in fungi whilst at university and began a small business with one of my fellow students growing oyster mushrooms. We quickly outgrew our setup at home and in the parents backyards and ended up growing mushrooms down at Fremantle prison, where we hired a double cell in the business incubation wing.
It soon became apparent that we were being overrun by mushrooms. We expanded again and moved to the Swan Valley before finally setting up our mushroom farm in the Perth hills at Gidgegannup
Our aim is to produce the freshest and highest quality gourmet fungi available in Perth with all of our produce supplied directly to the consumer via the farmers market.
We only use locally sourced raw materials and have a chemical and pesticide free process . and an organic farming philosophy
