Meet the Upsons
40 years of mushrooms
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. Find stacks of information about the benefits of medicinal mushrooms on our blog.

​Graham and his wife, Lee, have kids and grandies now. That means they want to be as healthy as they can, for as long as they can. And medicinal mushrooms are an important piece of the wellness puzzle for them.
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.
