Eric is currently serving in the military as a vehicle mechanic in the US Air Force but loves mushroom cultivation! He started cultivating in El Paso, TX in 2015 and grew his El Paso operation to be the largest mushroom farm in the city. Since then he sold his operation and moved to Wichita, KS where he’s constructing a 2400 sq ft facility. He’s been happily married for 9 years, to his wife Joana, who handles the bag sales. They have a son, Eric Jr, who loves to help out in the lab, and a daughter, Brooke, who was born in early 2019. He’s been growing commercially for 5 years and plans to expand his knowledge and equipment as he gets closer to military retirement and can grow mushrooms full-time.
