About us

Our Story


We are Sami & John and we live in Bakewell in the heart of The Peak District National Park. We both had very different jobs working as a Staff Nurse and an Environmental Engineer, but our love of gardening, cooking and using organic & sustainable produce led us down a different path.

We got the idea for our mushroom farm from watching a Countryfile episode on growing mushrooms on coffee grounds. The programme featured Gro-Cycle who grow mushrooms in a low tech way. So we attended all their courses and even got featured in one of their YouTube videos

And now a few years later we have an established business and our mushrooms have now appeared on Countryfile, we have been on BBC Radio Sheffield & Derby chatting about mushrooms. And BBC Radio Derby made a lovely little video for their social media you can watch here. We are also in the kitchens of award winning chefs in some of the finest restaurants in The Peak District.
