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.”

One Thing in Common
Did you know onions are the only basic ingredient found in every single solitary cuisine around the world? Onions are endlessly versatile and an essential ingredient in countless recipes. Believed to be native to Asia, these underground bulbs are prized all over the world; they are definitely prized in Yerington, Nevada at Peri & Sons Farms where we have been growing premium white, red, yellow, sweet and organic onions since 1979.

If you love cooking, and especially cooking with onions, then we think you will particularly enjoy this part of our website. We invite you to join our Onion Obsession Club to periodically receive information and recipes featuring onions.

Gnocchi with Fresh Cherry Tomato Sauce
Ingredients
2 cups store-bought gnocchi
1 pint cherry or grape tomatoes, washed and dried
1/2 yellow onion, finely chopped
4 cloves garlic, minced
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 tablespoon butter
4 ounces parmesan or Pecorino Romano, grated, plus more for garnish
Salt and pepper, to taste, plus 2 tablespoons salt for cooking the gnocchi
Fresh chopped Italian parsley or basil, for garnish
Directions
Cook the gnocchi: Bring a large pot of water to a boil with 2 tablespoons salt. Add the gnocchi and cook for two minutes, stirring often. Don't crowd the pan -- you may have to cook the gnocchi in batches. You'll know the gnocchi is ready when it floats to the top of the pan. Remove the gnocchi with a slotted spoon, drain in a colander, and set aside.

In a large cast-iron skillet, heat the butter and olive oil to medium. Add onions and tomatoes and sauté until the onions are beginning to brown and tomatoes begin to blister and pop, about 7-8 minutes. Add the garlic and cook for another two minutes. Add the gnocchi and let cook for about 5 minutes, until the gnocchi begins to absorb the liquid from the tomatoes. Stir in cheese and season with salt and pepper to taste. Garnish with additional cheese and chopped herbs. Serve immediately.
