Fresh mushrooms available year round.
Over the past 40 years, we have become known as the "mushroom guys". The oldest mushroom farm in the Midwest, we started as a two-man operation growing only white button mushrooms. Today, we have a team of dedicated farmers who sustainably cultivate five varieties of mushrooms year-round, without using any chemicals, preservatives, or growth enhancers.
MUSHROOM VARIETIES WE SELL
- Crimini (also known as Baby Bella)
- White Button
HOW WE GROW OUR MUSHROOMS
We plant our mushrooms on a 14-day cycle to allow a continuous harvest throughout the year. Our mushrooms grow in 35 ton batches of compost, which we sustainably produce using agricultural bi-products—a combination of stable bedding, poultry litter, agricultural gypsum, spent distillers or brewer’s grain. The compost is carefully pasteurized during the mushroom growing process.

At River Valley Ranch, we are committed to using sustainable food practices from farm to table, and all of our foods are grown and produced without any chemicals, preservatives, or growth enhancers.
