The mushrooms we sell in our stores across Yorkshire are now all grown locally thanks to our partnership with Monaghan Mushrooms Limited.

The family-run business, which has a farm in Goole, was founded in 1981 and has been supplying mushrooms to our stores across the country for the last 25 years.

Gavin Coventry, farm manager at Monaghan Mushrooms, said: "We are delighted to work in partnership with Asda, providing locally grown mushrooms for the local people of Yorkshire!

“Not everyone realises but all fresh mushrooms are hand-picked – every single one.

“Because they are so sensitive, we work to a ‘one touch’ only system during the harvest. This means that the picking of the mushrooms is the first and only time they are touched between the mushroom bed and supermarket shelves.

“This helps ensure the freshest, best quality mushrooms for our customers and what makes a Monaghan Mushroom so special.”
