Started picking the first of this years crop of reishi today. Always a very beautiful mushroom. The latin name is Ganoderma lucidum. Ganoderma means shiny skin and lucidum means bright. As you can see from the picture it lives up to its name.
Reishi commonly known as the mushroom of immortality has been revered for their medicinal properties for thousands of years. In traditional Chinese medicine they are regarded as cure all and have been shown to have beneficial effects on immune dysfunction, sugar regulation, liver ailments, fatigue and more. The Chinese name is Ling Zhi.
We will be harvesting reishi over the next few months, it is a slow growing. The next step is to dry them and then they should be ready for our farmers markets from August onwards.
Continuing to add improvements to our website and online shop. You can now purchase items in the shop and book foraging courses on our site with Paypal.
There was a problem earlier with all varieties of the log kit showing as out of stock in the Mushroom Table Store. I have corrected this. Only Porcelain Fungus and Many-zoned Polypore are currently out of stock. All the others should be available.
Have sorted out more sensible shipping rates for the online store but looks a bit messy when you go to the basket. Scroll down the page to get past the shipping calculator.
In the process of adding new online store. Still a work in progress but have to go and grow some mushrooms now. Please ignore the shipping costs that come up, this still needs some work. Shipping is around £6 for up to 0.5kg of dried mushrooms, not each item purchased as the store shows at the moment. Hope to sort this out very soon.
Email or message me if you want something in the meantime.
