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.

Indian Butter Chicken
1 tablespoon butter
1 tablespoon vegetable oil
1 pound chicken breasts, cut into 1inch pieces
1 yellow onion, diced
3 garlic cloves, minced
3 teaspoons store-bought garam masala paste (we like Patak's brand)
1 tablespoon fresh-grated ginger
1/2 tsp cayenne pepper (optional)
1 14-ounce can tomato sauce
2 cups whole-milk yogurt
Salt and pepper, to taste
Additional yogurt, lime and cilantro, for garnish
Heat a large skillet to medium-high. Add oil and cook the chicken, flipping once, until each side is browned. Remove from heat and set aside.

Lower the same pan to medium and add 1 tablespoon butter. Add the onion, and cook until beginning to soften — about three minutes. Add the garlic, garam masala, ginger and cayenne (if using). Stir to combine, and cook for about 45 seconds before adding the tomato sauce.

Bring the mixture to a simmer and let cook for five minutes. Add the yogurt and chicken and simmer for about 10 minutes. Season with salt and pepper to taste.

Serve garnished with lime and cilantro, alongside rice and naan.
Indian Butter Chicken
Our version of this Indian classic is made lighter by substituting whole yogurt for the cream, and made easier to prepare by using a store-bought spice blend. Serve with steamed rice, naan and additional yogurt, for garnish.
