*** CONVENTIONAL ***
Please note that these mushrooms are conventional.
Less food miles (There aren't any SA Cert. Organic mushroom growers. These mushrooms are from Monarto)
Less packaging (no trays with glad wrap. I buy bulk loose and pack into paper bags)
Freshness (I get them one day before box delivery)
The difference in growing mushrooms organically compared to conventional is not really all that different. No chemicals are used on these mushrooms during the growing process.
Did you know that mushroom compost is an allowed input for Cert. Organic fruit and veg production? It's amazing in the home garden too. You can plant into it sooner than other composts as it's fairly neutral on the pH scale.
