Premier Mushrooms Farm Tour & Lunch


Purchase tickets HERE

Please join Slow Food Yolo for a unique experience touring the Premiere Mushrooms in Colusa. Premier Mushrooms is located Colusa California. It is one of the county’s fastest growing ag-related industries and is counted among the county’s largest private sector employers. At Premier Mushrooms the product is composted, grown, processed and distributed. The composting and pasteurization processes take place in a fully enclosed wharf area, a process which provides several benefits which can be seen in the final product. There are currently 48 growing rooms at the farm, but the estimated November 1, 2013 completion of the farms expansion will increase that number to 64 rooms.

After the tour, we will enjoy a delicious meal featuring Premiere Mushrooms prepared by our host Cynthia. This is a zero-waste event, so guests will bring your own tableware, cloth napkins and beverage of choice, we will provide wine glasses (no paper or plastics please).

Meet at 2:00 at 510 10th Street, Colusa

Tickets $20
