Mushrooms - Grown Locally, Fresh Daily - Really? (NC) - Cold, snowy, dark and long is the typical Ontario winter. Usually, most produce in your local grocery store is imported from warm, sunny places such as Florida, California and Mexico. Mushrooms are different. They are grown locally, never imported and are always brought to you fresh, seven days a week, 12 months of the year - really!
Mushrooms are all harvested by hand, which ensures that only the highest quality mushrooms are picked for your dinner table. From the moment of harvest, mushrooms are kept at a constant temperature of 32°F/2°C. This cold-chain is maintained from the farm all the way to the grocery store, so within 12 hours you and your family will be eating the freshest mushrooms possible.
Fresh, crisp mushrooms make your meals tasty, healthy and easy. Just saute and serve. Remember, Canadian mushrooms are always Fresh, Simple, Good.
