From our highly knowledgeable and dedicated growers to our experienced packing line, drivers, warehouse staff, office staff and management team, it takes a dedicated group of talented and passionate individuals to get our mushrooms from farm to plate.
Harvesters pick mushrooms and place them into trays, boxes, or other containers. They select and pick mushrooms according to size, weight, cleanliness, length of the stem, and overall condition according to consumer preference and standards.
Runners assist harvesters by removing packed mushroom containers, weighing the packed mushroom container and replacing it with an empty container.
Packers work in our packaging department. They weigh and sort mushrooms to customer specifications for size and quality. They also wash, weigh and slice the harvested mushrooms making sure they are packaged and ready to be shipped to the customer.
Truck drivers are responsible for picking up freight loads and ensuring our freshly picked mushrooms make their way to our distribution centers or to our customers. We have several positions available from Class A and B to solo or team drivers.

Alfonso has been working in the mushroom industry for 11 years. It’s hard work but the pay is consistent, and he’s been able to provide for his family.
Alfonso, Mushroom Harvester
What I like about working at the mushroom farm is that there is always work. It’s not like working other jobs that are only during certain times of the year. Mushrooms grow all year so there is always work to be done.

Gabriel has been in the mushroom industry for more than 30 years. He had never worked on a mushroom farm when he started, but worked hard and was able to move up in our company. One of the things he likes about working in the industry is the atmosphere. It’s like a big family. Everyone works hard and his coworkers have become friends and his managers are like family.
