Monterey Mushrooms' General Manager David Nesselrode Takes Us Through the New Mushrooms Facility
MADISONVILLE, TX - David Nesselrode, General Manager of Monterey Mushrooms, recently took the time to show AndNowUKnow behind the scenes of the new, organic mushroom facility in Madisonville, Texas.
Taking its mushroom production to new heights, the facility now bumps up Monterey’s harvest to as much as 20 million pounds of organic white and brown mushrooms a year. The new facility also has focused its energy on recycling and sustainability, using a 21-day composting process that uses 100% synthetic wheat straw.
During this visit with AndNowUKnow, Nesselrode takes us through the company’s entire five-step growing process, from composting, pasteurization, spawning, casing, pinning, and finally to harvest.
