Meet the Upsons

The Upson family have been captivated by mushrooms for as long as any of them can remember. Graham Upson has been studying mycology for over 40 years and his family has been happily along for the ride.


After all that research, Graham and his daughter, Catherine, want to share the benefits of medicinal mushrooms. Touchwood Mushrooms offers Australian grown and processed medicinal mushrooms that can help overall health and wellness in people of all ages.

After establishing Western Australia's biggest mushroom farm and running it from 1976-1997, the Upsons were keen for a sea change. They left Perth and  landed in Denmark in 1997. Soon, they began construction on their purpose built mushroom growing facility.

The Touchwood Mushroom facility is located in Scotsdale and features a Class 100 mushroom growing laboratory and an autoclave. These allow Touchwood to produce pristine mushrooms, free of contaminants. 

The colonisation and growing rooms allow Graham to control oxygen, carbon dioxide and moisture levels. Growing mushrooms is a delicate balance and the Upsons have invested a great deal into getting it right.
