Perhaps it was instinct that led him to where he is today. Brad was fortunate to have travelled for many years, exploring new skills, landscapes and immersing himself in unique culinary experiences. “I learned to appreciate the talent and hard work that goes into growing quality produce. It became increasingly important to know the source of my food.” His respect for preserving nature grew stronger as he studied many aspects agriculture while working on a farm. “These skills are in my blood” Brad states that his grandfather grew up and worked on a on a farm in New Brunswick, Canada. The culmination of experiences defined the way he values the relationship between the chef and farmer. The commercial production of mushrooms involves a unique blend of science and farming; this fuels Brad’s passion for his work and is evident in the consistent quality of his mushrooms.
