VISIT TO MAJESTIC MUSHROOM FARM AT DICKS CREEK ROAD, MURRUMBATEMAN

Majestic Mushrooms Pty. Ltd. is a mushroom growing business situated in Murrumbateman, just 25 minutes from the Canberra CBD.  The owners of the business are Helen and Ian Chu, who are both University of Canberra graduates. After spending 10 years in their professional careers, they undertook a career change and in 2006 built a mushroom farm and are now full-time mushroom farmers.

They grow many varieties of mushrooms including White button cup, Swiss brown and Portabello which they sell at the Saturday Canberra Region Farmers Market and at their shop, Majestic Fresh, in the Canberra Centre.

As the Farm is not open to the public the owners require, for insurance purposes, the exact number of people wishing to visit their farm.    You will not be able to join the tour of the Farm unless your name is registered and therefore please send an email to cogsvicepresident@gmail.com if you wish to attend.  Also due to hygience requirements all persons attending the event are required to wear enclosed footwear (i.e. no thongs/sandals).  No one will be admitted unless they comply with this requirement.

All members and their friends are invited and at the conclusion of the tour afternoon tea will be served.  Please bring a plate of food to share.

If you would like futher information about the farm and its owners refer to the following web articles at:
