Science aiding growth at Stonington mushroom farm

Chris Pacheco is a mushroom farmer who has found his passion in growing oyster mushrooms and various other fungi. Despite his love for different types of mushrooms, he is not an oyster farmer. Pacheco owns Seacoast Mushrooms, where he cultivates oyster mushrooms and other flavorful fungi in a 12,000-square-foot mushroom farm located on Taugwonk Road. The farm is housed in a large blue warehouse with shipping containers in the back.

Growing up, Pacheco planted trees for his family’s apple orchard in Rhode Island, where he developed a dislike for farming in rocky New England soil. He pursued an engineering degree to move away from farming and later spent time in the U.S. Navy aboard the USS Hartford, which eventually brought him to the area where he currently resides. Following his submarine service, Pacheco remained in the region, working in the corporate world for fifteen years.

In 2015, Pacheco was drawn back to his farming roots by the challenge of growing mushrooms. He developed a business plan focused on connecting with his community through food, leading to the establishment of Seacoast Mushrooms. Today, Pacheco and his team work together to grow a variety of mushrooms, offering fresh and flavorful produce to their local area.
