Walker River Cooling and Nevada Fresh Pak
In 2009, we planted romaine for the Nunes team. Our partnership has been a natural progression of two family companies coming together to become smarter and more efficient. Our operations completely complement each other.

According to David Peri, “The Nunes family possess the same work ethic as our family does. They are hardworking honest leaders and innovators that care about the industry. Their level of expertise in harvesting, cooling, sales and marketing is unsurpassed. Our combined set of skills, along with our great people, truly create the perfect match.”

Nevada Fresh Pak, a Peri & Sons Farms company and the Nunes Company each bring a set of unique strengths, talents, resources and perspectives to the table. Our ability to work so well together as a team and to communicate and execute on shared goals and objectives is key to our ongoing success.
This exciting project reinforces our belief that Nevada’s Future is Fresh
“This venture is a great example of the success we’re witnessing across Nevada. I am proud to congratulate and thank this hometown company for investing in the region and bringing good paying jobs to Lyon County,” said Nevada Governor, Brian Sandoval. “The commitment of these two-family run companies shows their ability to creatively and strategically meet the demands of the marketplace. Nevada is proud to be a part of this vision and the positive impact it will have on our community.”

The Safety of Our Water and Produce
Since 1979, Peri & Sons Farms has been committed to producing onions and produce of the highest quality. Recently, there has been media attention to a development at the Anaconda Mine in Yerington and its designation by the EPA as a site requiring remediation. While we have never been affected by the status of the mine, we are glad that the site will finally get the support needed.

The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the Nevada Department of Environmental Protection (NDEP) have always stated that agricultural products in this area are completely safe because they have independently tested both soil and water since 2004. Additionally, our own internal long term sampling practice for both soil and water further proves the safety on our farms.

In January 2016, we became the first domestic onion farming operation to achieve the Sustainably Grown certification from SCS Global Services, which is an incredible accomplishment and a great source of Peri Family pride.

In short, the status of the Anaconda Mine has never affected our farming operation. We are proud of our operation and our decades-long family tradition of providing the safest onions and produce to customers across the country and around the world.
