     History
    The plant produced 50,000 pounds of mushrooms per day and shipped them to Los Angeles, San Francisco and Sacramento for distribution throughout the state and country. They also shipped directly to Hawaii. The rest went to Campbell’s soup and ended up in cans on your shelf. Money’s top clients are Safeway, Albertson’s and
    Vons.

    The 650-acre mushroom farm was started in 1957 by Campbell’s Soup, mainly to supply their Sacramento soup plant with mushrooms. They picked the oceanside location because cooling is an important part of growing mushrooms. They saved thousands of dollars each year due to the cool temperatures provided by the ocean breezes. The plant operated nearly the same way it operated back in the fifties. It used mostly recycled materials that would have otherwise ended up in landfill.
