Scotland: Mushroom with a view for farmer Alisha

In her own words Alisha Fuller-Armah is ‘a proud Black mushroom farmer in Scotland’. Having sold her former business as a proprietor of a destination wedding venue in Jamaica (Hummingbird Hall), just before the lockdown in 2019, Fuller-Armah told Lifestyle at that point in her life she was looking for new horizons, a new endeavour, a new place to call home.

Her decision to leave the industry came about due to increasing competition from big corporate competition who were literally ripping off her ever evolving unique selling points, however, the one thing they couldn’t offer was wholesome, organic mushrooms.

She says offering high quality mushrooms was a big hit with the clients who used to frequent her venue, but never in a million years did she realise just how her newly acquired skill-set, born out of a need to differentiate themselves from the fierce competition, would go down a storm in her new place of abode.

Nestled within the remote wilds of south-west Scotland lies Fuller-Armah’s 15-acre estate, where she and her family cultivate an array of exquisite mushrooms.
