More about Majestic Mushrooms
Majestic Mushrooms Pty. Ltd. is a mushroom growing business situated in Murrumbateman, just 25 minutes from the Canberra CBD. This makes us the closest mushroom farm to Canberra and your local supplier.
Our mushrooms can be found in many top fruit shops, supermarkets and restaurants in Canberra and the surrounding region. If you miss out on the Saturday Farmer’s market, don’t worry, as you can come see us at our shop, Majestic Fresh in Canberra Centre for the full range of our mushrooms and all the other fruit and vegetables in season.
What types of mushrooms we grow
White button, cup, flat mushrooms (Agaricus Bisporus).
Swiss Brown and Portabello mushrooms (Agaricus Bisporus).
The owners of the business are Helen and Ian Chu, whom are both University of Canberra graduates. Helen has a Bachelor of Education degree, while Ian has a Bachelor of Engineering degree. After spending 10 years in our professional careers, we pursued a career change and in 2006 we built a mushroom farm. We are now full-time mushroom farmers.
Where the Mushrooms are Grown
Our mushrooms are grown in state-of-the-art, fully climate controlled growing rooms, where the environmental conditions are closely controlled via advanced control systems and PCs. Finite adjustments to growing conditions can all be done remotely on Ian’s iPhone anywhere in the world. This facility was all designed by us and constructed from scratch. By simulating the ideal mushroom growing “”season””, we are able produce mushrooms all year round in rain, hail, shine or drought.

Spent Mushroom Compost
For those with a green thumb, Majestic Mushrooms is also your local supplier of spent mushroom compost. Mushroom compost is a great source of nutrients for the gardens, has excellent water retention, balances soil pH levels and can help promote seedling growth. You may call Ian on 0408437704 to organise a pick up of this top product for a fraction of the cost you’d expect to pay from a garden centre. Current promotion: $20 / cubic meter (or full trailer loaded on site).
Mushroom Stalks for Cattle Feed
For those with cattle, Majestic Mushrooms can also supply free mushroom stalks as an alternate food source. The stalks have the same great nutritional value as mushrooms, are chemical free and we have an endless supply though all seasons, including times of drought. Enquire with Ian on 0408437704.
