MEET OUR FAMILY
Darrell McLain and his sons, Greg and Phil, worked at mushroom farms in other areas of the country before moving to Texas to build a farm of their own in 1988. They knew they could integrate new technology with their knowledge and passion for mushroom farming to build one of the premier mushroom farms in the country .
Growing white button, crimini, portabella, oyster and shiitake mushrooms, Kitchen Pride harvests thousands of pounds of mushrooms every day. Along with putting sustainable farming methods into practice, Kitchen Pride employs extensive water conservation and recycling programs. After each crop, the compost used to grow mushrooms is sold to be used again on farmers’ fields and in local gardens and landscaping.
Kitchen Pride employees have embraced the McLain’s attitude of personal care and attention to consistently produce high quality mushrooms year round. We are fortunate to have customers in the food service industry and retail customers alike that appreciate fresh locally-grown quality and truly take it to market. Our Central Texas location and modern growing methods have allowed us to provide our customers with the freshest and highest quality mushrooms available.
