Groves Country Farms Mushrooms
Family Farmed Idaho Mushrooms
Idaho natives, Mason and Tia Groves are fourth-generation farmers, but first-generation mushroom farmers. They started the family business when they realized Mason’s job as a commercial fisherman out of Alaska was not conducive to their goals of putting down roots and raising a family. Mason consulted with his grandad about the best path into agriculture and decided to start a mushroom farm since there were fewer barriers to entry and it was a crop he could grow year-round.
