Quality Mushrooms

Quality Mushrooms

Ohaupo, Waikato

Quality Mushrooms operate a mushroom farm located on Ranby Road, Ohaupo, producing approximately 6-7.5 tonnes of mushrooms per week. The company started in 1988 with four sheds, and has gone through stages of development.

Quality Mushrooms produce their own compost from a combination of chicken manure, straw and water. Leachwater from the compost is recycled through two underground water tanks prior to reuse on the compost.

Odour emissions from the composting activities are directed through a bio-filter medium. (Consisting of a natural mixture of waste compost and clean bark fibre that neutralises the emission by a biochemical reaction) which was initially constructed in 1991, and was replaced with an improved version in 1996. Quality Mushroom’s usage of the bio-filter medium was the first in relation to mushroom farms in New Zealand. The final compost product is then utilised to grow the mushrooms in 8 separate sheds. All spent compost (approximately 60 m3 per week) is sold to local garden nurseries for mulching and general soil improvement purposes.
