In 1984 Fernando and Anabela Medeiros had a dream of building a mushroom farm. With 15 years of mushroom farming experience under their belt, they started Carleton Mushroom Farms, a small family farm in Osgoode, Ontario, Canada.
Over the years their dreams and ambitions continued to grow, as did our farm. With family always at the heart of our farming practices, Fernando and Anabela’s two sons, Fernando Jr. and Mike, took over the daily operations and management in 2005.
Since then, our growing capacity has tripled, we’ve seen yields steadily increase to 10.5 million pounds per year, we implemented new state-of-the-art growing practices, and brought in modern and cutting-edge technologies from all over the world. Our steady expansion and attention to quality has allowed us to become the leading supplier of fresh mushrooms to Eastern Ontario and Western Quebec.
“We take pride in offering fresh mushrooms that have been grown in “your own backyard” to our local community and beyond.”
Food safety, modern growing practices and proper handling of mushrooms are always at the forefront of our operations. We strive to grow and deliver delicious and nutritious mushrooms to our local area and beyond.
We are proud to grow our mushrooms without the use of chemicals and pesticides, making Carleton Mushroom a wholesome and organic choice. Our food safety and handling certifications include HACCP, SQF 2000 and Organic.
Our integrated approach to farming allows us to harvest mushrooms from our 40 growing rooms and process, package and distribute directly to our customers all within 48 hours. It is this fast and efficient integration that enables us to deliver the freshest, highest quality mushrooms possible.
