Monterey Mushrooms started as a single farm operation in the Watsonville, California area in 1971. Through application, vision and teamwork, Monterey has grown to its present position of leadership within the mushroom industry. Monterey's Madisonville, Texas farm, which began harvesting in 1976 reflects this, employing about 580 people and harvesting 97,000 square feet of mushrooms weekly.
Crops or varieties of mushrooms produced annually at Madisonville include 28 million pounds of white mushrooms, 5 million pounds of brown/Baby Bella or crimini mushrooms and 45,000 pounds of oyster mushrooms. Monterey's Madisonville farm employs sustainable growing practices dedicated to the highest standards for growing, harvesting, and packaging mushrooms to ensure their customers receive fresh and wholesome mushroom products. Madisonville is one of nine Monterey Mushrooms growing operations located across the country. Their fleet of trucks and refrigerated trailers service all of Texas and ships east to New Orleans, Louisiana, west to Phoenix, Arizona, and north to Denver, Colorado.
Madisonville recently joined with the other Monterey operations―introducing the totally new, unique and sustainable fiber packaging and labeling for fresh mushrooms. This new "green" packaging replaces the polystyrene foam packaging used in the industry for decades.
