We do one thing and one thing well - mushrooms! A family business, we currently focus on growing oyster mushrooms - phoenix, white velvet and the vibrant pink! We also sell grow kits (seasonally) and mushroom mulch for gardens. We grow locally right here in Oamaru so it’s just a roll down the hill to the market for us each Sunday.
When designing our logo it was important to us to incorporate the beautiful natural design of the oyster mushroom with the scenic surrounds of the Waitaki district. The resulting design can be viewed as the mountains reaching the sky or the ocean touching the shore.
Oyster mushrooms are new to many so we recommend trying with some olive oil or butter to enjoy the aromatic fragrance and flavour. The texture is meaty and when cooked the mushrooms retain their shape making them a beautiful, delicious and healthy addition to any meal.
Waitaki Mushrooms is almost as new to the Waitaki District as we are, but we are so grateful to be welcomed with open arms by locals. Waitaki really has become home.
