Get to Know Us

The Fungi Connection is a family-owned company that grows and sells gourmet culinary mushrooms to our local eateries and local specialty grocers. We also produce wholesale mushroom products for the commercial grower community.

The Fungi Connection has been growing mushrooms in the Kingston area for many years. As the company grew it moved from Wolfe Island to Hwy 38 and now to a purpose-built facility in Yarker (Moscow). With this move to Yarker we are looking for local employees who would like to work in an exciting agricultural environment with friendly staff at a beautiful location. We will provide training. We are seeking candidates who want to work in an agricultural environment, are flexible, and are willing to do a good job every day.

As a new staff member, you will be given on-the-job training. On a day-to-day basis you will be performing tasks such as substrate preparation, loading the sterilizers, hand harvesting, sorting, and packaging mushrooms as well as keeping your work areas clean and sanitized.
