Turkey Tail Mushroom

Turkey Tail mushroom (Trametes versicolor) is a very common “wood ear” mushroom that you probably have seen growing in old stumps across Australia with Its beautiful gradient colours.

Used by centuries by traditional herbalists, It is also a mushroom with very well known and impressive array of benefits.

Our Turkey Tail mushroom is organically grown in the beautiful Yarra Valley region (Victoria) and totally processed in Australia, which makes it a unique 100% Australia made product, quite rare in the mushroom supplement market. Besides the mushrooms we grow ourselves, we also source some from local small farmers in our network across Australia.

We currently produce the following Turkey Tail based dietary supplements:

  • Australian Turkey Tail - only one in the market that is made 100% in Australia with 100% Turkey Tail mushroom fruiting body - no added starches (by themselves or with mycelium) or anything that is not the mushroom. Available in 50g pouches and capsules.
  • Australian Turkey Tail dual liquid extract - using our very own Australian Turkey Tail powder, we bring you a convenient way of adding Reishi to your daily routine. This is a dual extract, meaning it is made with ethanol and water extracts. Available in 100 ml bottles.
  • Trinity Extract - Interested in the benefits of all top Australian mushrooms? This product has you covered. Mixing equal volumes of each of our fruiting body liquid extracts (Lion's Mane, Reishi and Turkey Tail), this is a great way to conveniently harness the benefits of these mushrooms. Available in 100 ml bottles.
