ABOUT

Dennis Melrath has been a part of our South Mill family for the past 20 years. Born in Lancaster PA, Dennis was raised on his father’s mushroom farm in Oxford. He attended Oxford High School, and after graduating from Lincoln University with a degree in Math and Education, he took over his father’s mushroom farm; which he then operated for 20 years. Dennis thoroughly enjoys the challenge of growing mushrooms. He says that each mushroom house has its own personality and believes that the process is similar to raising kids – each one with its own quirks. As expected with Dennis’ knowledge, he is often the designated tour guide for our visitors who are interested in learning about mushroom growing. Dennis currently resides in Lancaster County with his wife, Dana, and his 3 children. He also enjoys spending time with his 10 grandchildren, who live close by.  He also likes photography and is an avid gardener. Throughout the summer, Dennis shares his beautiful flowers for all to enjoy. Thank you for your dedication to South Mill, Dennis.

ACERCA DE

Dennis Melrath ha sido parte de nuestra familia South Mill por los últimos 20 años. Nacido en Lancaster, PA, Dennis se crió en Oxford en el campo de hongo de su papá. Dennis asistió a Oxford High School, y después de graduarse de Lincoln University con estudio en matemáticas y educación, él se hizo cargo del campo de su papá por 20 años. A Dennis le gusta el reto de cultivar hongo. Dice que cada casa de hongo tiene su propia personalidad y que el proceso del cultivo es similar al de criar hijos – cada uno tiene sus peculiaridades. Con el conocimiento que tiene, Dennis de costumbre viene siendo el guía designado para los visitantes interesados en aprender sobre la cosecha de hongo. Actualmente, vive en el condado de Lancaster con su esposa, Dana, y cerca de sus 3 hijos y 10 nietos. En su tiempo libre, a Dennis le encanta la fotografía y también trabajar en su jardín. Durante el verano, comparte sus flores para todos disfrutarlas. Gracias, Dennis, por su dedicación a South Mill.
