Madisonville, Texas, is home to one of ten Monterey Mushrooms farms. The town has become recognized as the Mushroom Capital of Texas and even has a festival to celebrate it. The Texas Mushroom Festival started in 2002 to bring the community together to enjoy food, art and entertainment.

Monterey Mushrooms proudly served up mushroom tacos and Let’s Blend sliders alongside actual growing trays to show the community how mushrooms make it from the farm to the fork.

Meet the Employees of Monterey Mushrooms

At Monterey Mushrooms, a lot of our team is literally family. For the rest of us, it just feels that way. We’re home to husbands and wives, as well as parents and generations of their children.

Even if we’re not all really related, many of us have been working together for decades. And that’s something special.

We’re a company of folks that think work should be fun. We enjoy what we do, why we do it and we enjoy each other’s company. So we’re always finding ways to have more fun together.

Every one of our farms has a different personality, decorates a little differently for the holidays and hosts its own celebrations like baby showers and potlucks.

Sit back and enjoy meeting a few of us from across the country and find out a little bit about what we do every day.

Year-round, we produce, package and distribute our fresh mushrooms from ten Monterey Mushrooms farms located across North America.

In the world of fresh produce production, mushrooms are a hearty, humble staple you can always rely on as a healthy option.
