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.”

Mac n' Cheese with Bacon and Onions
4 cups large elbow noodles
8 tablespoons butter
2 medium red, yellow or sweet onions, thinly sliced
10 slices bacon
1/4 cup flour
1 1/4 cups chicken or vegetable stock
1 1/4 cup whole milk
2 eggs, whisked
1/2 cup Gruyere cheese, grated
1/2 cup sharp cheddar, grated
1/2 cup Asiago or Parmesan, grated
1/2 cup Gorgonzola
Salt And pepper, to taste
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Bring a large pot of water to a boil and add 2 tablespoons salt. Cook macaroni for 6 minutes. Drain and set aside. This step is important -- the noodles with be very al dente, but do not cool longer that 6 minutes or the final product will be soggy.

Fry bacon until slightly crispy. Drain on a paper towel.

Melt 4 tablespoons butter in a skillet and sauté onions over medium-low heat for 10 to 12 minutes, or until golden brown and soft. Set aside.

In a pot, melt 4 tablespoons butter. Sprinkle in flour and whisk to combine. Cook, stirring constantly, over medium heat for 2 minutes, until the flour just starts to turn a tan color. Whisk in milk and stock and cook for 3 to 5 minutes or until thick. Reduce heat to low. Add salt & pepper to taste.

Slowly add 1/2 cup of the hot milk mixture into the whisked eggs, whisking constantly. You want to temper the eggs, being sure not to scramble them. Pour the entire egg and milk mixture back into the remaining milk mixture. Remove from heat.

Add cheeses to milk mixture and stir until melted. Add onions and bacon and stir. Taste for seasonings and add more salt if needed. Add cooked macaroni and stir to coat.

Pour into a baking dish and bake for 15 to 20 minutes or until sizzling and hot.
