River Valley Ranch is the oldest mushroom farm in the Midwest. Bill Rose founded it in 1976 with a sizable goal: he wanted to produce the finest fresh mushrooms for the local market. Son, Eric (pictured), joined the operation in 1977, and learned the art of growing mushrooms commercially from his dad. River Valley Ranch still produces fine fresh mushrooms, and also grows other produce, including 20 varieties of heirloom tomatoes, 10 varieties of potatoes, a dozen types of peppers, 10 varieties of onions, asparagus, spinach, Winter squash and more. All crops are grown without pesticides or chemicals. Since 1997, River Valley Kitchens, the farm’s licensed processing kitchen, has produced pickled mushrooms and more than 25 shelf-stable products. All preserved foods are made in small batches and hand packed. River Valley Ranch is an original member of Green City Market.  The farm’s motto is "Quality, freshness, and lots of Love"
