Livesey Brother’s located in Packington Leicestershire, is a family owned farm business which has been operating for over 30 years, when brothers Tim & Simon Livesey started to grow Oyster mushrooms in the Dad’s sheds. Now 30 years on Tim’s sons Daniel and William also play an essential role in the running of the business.

Over the years Livesey Brothers has developed from growing one type of Woodland Mushroom to now growing eight different varieties. Livesey Brothers are now the UK’s leading Woodland Mushroom growers, always ensuring the provide high quality, fresh & tasty Mushrooms to markets.
