WHO ARE WE?
Groves Country is a family name and we take pride in it. As fourth generation farmers, we value the hard work that goes into growing healthy, wholesome food. Always wanting to blaze the trail our own way however, we are the first generation of mushroom farmers in our family.
Tia and I own a commercial fishing operation in Alaska, where I have fished for 12 years. I used to think I wanted to spend my life fishing but what you don't understand as a young kid is that a good woman and some cute little boys outrank any sort of adrenaline rush or money that fishing might provide. I come from a line of exceptional onion and potato farmers so farming has always been in my blood. I have always wanted to pursue agriculture in some way and learned quickly that it wasn't going to be handed to me. Instead I've learned a lot about what it takes to be a man and that if I want something, I'm going to have to work for it.
She said yes! This was a very special day. I had no idea what was to come after this. I only knew that I wanted her every day, for the rest of my life. We have been married for 5 years now and have three incredibly perfect little boys. As our family has grown, we have had to face the reality that our fishing boat is not a place for little kids. I love fishing, I always said it is the best job in the world. Until now. Being a father and a husband is by far the greatest job in the world.
Being the entrepreneur that I've always been, I had an idea. I wanted to farm gourmet mushrooms. Having no idea how to do that, I started at ground zero and the good Lord has blessed that dream and brought us here. We are admittedly rookies, giving our all to growing this business! We hope to sell our fishing boat and no longer spend our summers apart. We are putting all our energy into growing the highest quality mushrooms in Idaho and we are honored to be where we are today. Thank you for purchasing Groves Country mushrooms and thank you for fueling our family's dream!
