About Us
Jordan Jent started Texas Fungus in the Fall of 2016 and now grows the freshest mushrooms in Dallas Fort Worth. He originally started a career in cooking when he came to Dallas in 2012 and then stepped away the culinary arena in the summer of 2016 to try out a finance career in corporate America. While working for Fidelity Investments, Jordan felt the need to somehow get back in the kitchen and always fascinated by mushrooms, so he thought “Why not combine them together?”. Two years later of self-teaching coupled with trial and error, Texas Fungus came to life and Jordan has been having fun ever since.
Jordan uses as much organic materials and substrates that are available. Throughout the entire process of mushroom growing, there is a constant fight against contamination. Because of this, Texas Fungus chooses to use organic hardwood sawdust, soybean hulls, and organic grains such as rye, wheat bran, millet, and sorghum to reduce the chance of contamination. Texas Fungus buys mushroom growing materials from local producers, farmers and ranchers as much as possible and when available. Once the mushroom growing process is over and spent, the leftover substrate is then used for compost to other farmers, buried underground, or donated to a local community garden.
