On The Farm Q&A: Washing Mushrooms

We traveled to Whitecrest Mushroom Farm in Putnam, Ontario to visit mushroom farmer, Murray Good. Foodland Ontario was along for the visit and captured some great video! Check out the videos for answers to some of the questions you asked:

How to Wash Mushrooms

Share the Good!

Yesterday was the 6th Annual Foodland Ontario Celebration of Local Food at Queen’s Park, Toronto. It truly was a farmer’s market of Ontario commodities and a celebration of the wonderful foods Ontario has to offer. It was such an excellent opportunity to Share the Good, especially with our Ontario Minister of Agriculture, Food and Rural Affairs, Ted McMeekin, who stopped by the Mushrooms Canada booth!

The day turned out to be absolutely wonderful, with very little (but welcome) rain! In the heat, our fresh Crimini Mushrooms with Spinach Dip were a hit along with the other samples of everything from ice cream, to hot dogs, to devilled eggs!
Enjoy your local foods because Good Things Grow in Ontario!
