As ‘Gourmet Champignons’ we champion gourmet goodness for all! From home foodies and vivacious vegans to restaurateurs and fine chefs, we believe that everyone should have access to the amazing taste and health benefits of ‘Mushroom Exotica’.

Ruby Creek is an urban, carbon neutral gourmet mushroom farm on the Quandamooka Coast (Redlands Coast) and we truly believe that the best mushrooms are fresh, locally grown mushrooms.

Picked at precisely the right time and served as soon as possible, we mostly supply our ‘Mushroom Exotica’ to local Chefs, restaurants and caterers. Mushroom Exotica isn’t just for the chefs and cooks, you can also buy them freshly harvested from us at local markets, or grow your own with one of our grow kits to get the freshest result right in your kitchen.
