Over the course of history, our farm has grown from a few modest mushroom doubles selling out of a pickup truck to being one of the largest mushroom companies in the US, selling over 57 million pounds of mushrooms per year!
State of the art technology, improved business processes, and decades-long experience give us the competitive edge we need to satisfy customers nationwide. Our continued investment has given us the ability to continue our passion for quality and service.

Here is an early packing line, circa 1974. The first packing room had only 18 employees.
Here is an image showing some of the packing lines located in what is the third and current packing plant.
Constructed in 1996 and expanded twice since then we are dedicated to utilizing the best techniques and pioneering new ones.
First constructed in 2009 Warwick has been the pinnacle of the third generation of mushroom growers and pioneers.
Using the most advanced mushroom growing technology and the best manufacturing practices, we are able to provide the highest quality product.
We have some of the best people in the industry employing strategic processes that allow us to grow better, fresher, and higher quality mushrooms.
