Insight · Fickle Funghi
A mushroom looks like a humble, simple thing, but there is a heap of effort that goes into growing them. We had a long afternoon session, captured in this video, with fungi farmer Michelle, a tough-as-nails farmer who runs a slick operation out in Avenel, Victoria. Michelle's mushies are a hot ticket item. She specialises in swiss browns and field mushrooms, and she supplies them to the super crew at Aussie Farmers Direct.
