Gallagher Tours Mushroom Facility


California District III Assemblyman James Gallagher made a recent visit to Premier Mushrooms Inc. in Colusa.

“It was great to see how Premier Mushroom Inc. and its local employees are utilizing the latest technology to grow quality mushrooms for the American consumer and grow our local economy,” said Gallagher.

The Assemblyman spent nearly two hours at the mushroom farm where he toured the growing rooms and the packaging facility.

Premier Mushrooms CEO John Ashbaugh and CFO Chris Krebs accompanied Gallagher on the tour to explain the operation and to discuss their needs and concerns as a California-based business.

“We are pleased that the Assemblyman is taking the time to become familiar with Colusa County businesses,” said Ashbaugh, “and we enjoy hosting our state representatives and sharing what is being accomplished in Colusa County.”
