Mushroom Production

Mushroom production has expanded steadily over the past decade and there are approximately 580 growers throughout the country. Ireland is now exporting over 35,000 tones of fresh mushrooms, while consumption on the domestic market is approaching 10,000 tonnes. Total production is around 50,000 tonnes per annum with 70% exported. Mushrooms have been a major success story in diversification, providing income and employment on many small farms. It is an ideal complementary enterprise on farms where there is available labour.
