Originally established in 1986 on the Wattlewood farm, in the Bapsfontein area, Country Mushrooms has always been in the pursuit of growing only the finest quality mushrooms in South Africa. With the addition of neighboring Aalwyne farm Country Mushrooms quickly became one of the biggest producers of fresh mushrooms in Gauteng.
With the introduction of innovative technology, improved cultivation methods and expert guidance from top growers the production output on the two farms has been increased to a current average of about 60 tons per week. This production output constitutes 85% White and 15% Brown mushrooms, of which 90% is sold fresh and 10% is processed in brine. Both farms have their own pack houses where all mushrooms are packed before delivery. We supply a comprehensive selection of mushrooms, ranging from 250g pre-packs to 5kg boxes.
Country Mushrooms have a large delivery fleet of 19 vehicles and are able to deliver anywhere in Gauteng and surrounding areas on a daily basis. Their broad customer base includes restaurants, fast food outlets as well as wholesalers and chain stores. All our facilities, including the pack houses and growing rooms, are fully accredited by Haccp, Global GAP & Farming for the Future. We also pack Halaal.
