Mushrooms grow very well in the dark and that is why we grow them in special cells with the light off… which saves energy ! Many people think that we grow mushrooms in the dark so that they keep their wonderful white colour but that’s not the case .. light is not important .. that’s all. The mushrooms grow on a bed of organic compost made of straw, manure and a natural plaster. On top of this compost a layer of soil is added. The compost also contains mushroom spores which in Dutch we call “broed”. After about one week the mushrooms start to grow. One week later we can start picking. All the picking is done by hand and is spread out over three different flights. During each of these flights we pick the mushrooms that have the right size and quality. The fresh picked product goes into the special mushroom trays, are cooled and are then shipped to our customers. That is why you get such a wonderful fresh product !
