Tom Baxter

Ever conscious of the unfolding ecological collapse that confronts us, Tom chose to make the fateful move away from city chatter to find meaning through working the land in 2008.

After a few educational years establishing his organic vegetable farm and following 2 decades of largely unsuccessful excursions foraging for mushrooms, from the foothills of the pyrenees to the siberian steppes, Tom experienced a revelation during a mushroom cultivation course he attended in 2018.

In 2019 he downed tools on the farm and invested all he had into creating The Bristol Fungarium, producing the UK's first organic certified medicinal mushrooms.
