Starting with Oysters
Oyster mushrooms have been used for thousands of years as a culinary and medicinal ingredient. Their importance to Chinese medicine has been recognized from 3000 years ago, they were noted particularly as an immune tonic. They are also rich in antioxidants, reduce cholestrol and have anti bacterial properties. Oyster mushrooms are high in nutrients. They contain significant levels of zinc, iron, potassium, calcium, phosphorus, vitamin C, folic acid, niacin, and vitamins B-1 and B-2.
Currently we are focussing on growing delicious Oyster Mushrooms. We are growing Pink, Gold and Beige Mushrooms.
We sell directly from Rocklands Urban Abundance Centre on Tuesdays and Fridays from 9am - 12 pm. We also welcome individual orders.
