“I had the best day learning everything I could possibly imagine (and more) about mushrooms from Amy and Mickey. They are so passionate and knowledgeable that you can’t help but be bitten by the fungi bug!

I thoroughly enjoyed the ‘show bag’ full of delicious fungi goodness and recipes and I am having great success with my first flush of little mushroom babies. I absolutely recommend a course with Little Acre Mushrooms for anyone interested in fungi or those wanting to grow their own.”
