About Livesey Brothers 

Livesey Brothers is the leading producer of woodland mushrooms in the UK. We are a family run woodland mushroom farm located in the heart of Leicestershire. Established in 1985 by brothers Tim and Simon Livesey, who grew up near Ashby De-La-Zouch on a farm where their father Tom grew button mushrooms.

Tim and Simon knew the button mushrooms market was becoming dominated by large scale producers, and for them to progress in the future they needed to start growing something a little different, unusual and exotic. A mushroom like no other, a mushroom from further afield. They came across the Oyster mushrooms and decided to take the risk and trail growing this unfamiliar yet deliciously tasty mushroom, and the brothers never looked back.

We have been continuously developing over the past 36 years and now have over 50 specialists growing rooms on our farm, cultivating six different varieties of woodland and exotic mushrooms.


All year around we supply the UK’s leading supermarkets including Asda, Waitrose, Sainsbury’s and Morrisons, as well as retailers and wholesale suppliers throughout the UK. Livesey Brothers is now into its third generation, with Daniel and William sons of Tim Livesey taking over some of the main roles and growing responsibilities on the farm.
