The Mushroom Table
The Mushroom Table are pioneers of the biodynamic cultivation of local mushrooms. We collect wild mushrooms from local woods and fields on the Essex – Suffolk borders. From these we choose the best varieties for cultivation. We take cuttings from these varieties to produce our mushroom spawn. By taking cuttings we are able to cultivate mushrooms with the same characteristics as the original wild mushroom in the same way as plant growers propogate plants. Selecting local mushrooms ensures that the mushrooms we grow are suited to our local climate.
