Pleurotus Ostreatus

The Black Pearl Oyster is a delicious hybrid of two oyster varieties.  The stem is thick and meaty with the taste and texture of a king oyster, while the cap is dark brown with rich flavour.

These firm mushrooms are great on a grill or pan fried. Slice or section the mushrooms, and place them in a bowl and toss them with a drizzle of oil while your cooking surface heats up. Add a pinch of salt before dropping them in your pan. Resist the temptation to push them around while they cook, and you will be rewarded with golden crispy edges! They are a beautiful addition to a grain bowl or atop a bed of greens.

 

Kendal Hills Game Farm is situated on 70 acres of rolling woodland in the ecologically sensitive Oak Ridges Moraine. Emily has called Kendal Hills home since she was a child and now she and Dave, as well as their two kids and her parents, are working with the land to farm pasture-raised fowl & other livestock and to cultivate and wild-harvest gourmet mushrooms. Emily & Dave are committed to the principles of regenerative agriculture.

Regenerative agriculture is a system of farming principles and practices that increases biodiversity, enriches soils, improves watersheds, and enhances ecosystem services. By capturing carbon in soil and aboveground biomass, regenerative agriculture aims to reverse global climate change. At the same time, it offers increased yields, resilience to climate instability, and higher health and vitality for farming communities. The system draws on decades of scientific and applied research by the global communities of organic farming, agroecology, holistic grazing, and agroforestry.

In addition to the farm, Emily works as an academic librarian and Dave draws upon his 15 years working on community food security and social innovation as Executive Director of the Rhizome Institute for the Future of Food, a national nonprofit dedicated to developing and testing new ideas that contribute to a regenerative food system.
