On This Week’s Show:
Pictured above l-r: John Kerrigan, Laura Belton (Monaghan Mushrooms), Karen Kerrigan (Kerrigans Mushrooms) and Peter Donegan.
On this weeks episode of The Sodshow, Peter Donegan chats with two of Irelands largest and best growers of one of Ireland’s greatest exports (85% of all grown in Ireland are exported) – the mushroom.
From picking and how they are grown, to the industry itself, the benefits nutritionally, how Monaghan Mushrooms employ 3,500 people, worldwide (yes, you read correctly) all the way up to the ‘Just Add Mushroom’ campaign (their Facebook page has 109,000 plus likes… Yes, you read correctly) and the support the industry receives from Bord Bia, Ireland’s Food Promotional Board – who we should also thank for their help in putting this weeks show together.
The Sodshow – Ireland’s garden podcast, can be found in iTunes and all good podcast stores from 3.30pm every Friday.
