Our Farm is Our Family
There isn’t a day that goes by that we don’t give thanks for the good fortune of being successful year-after-year doing what we truly love—growing premium onions. Just onions. Lots and lots of them.
Peri & Sons Farms

The farm David envisioned years ago, with the first seed he planted, has blossomed and grown significantly with the help and support of his family, friends and loyal team. Peri & Sons Farms is a true family farm, which is defined as a farm solely owned, operated and sustained by a family with a long heritage of farming.


Our deep, personal commitment sets us apart from farms that operate as collectives, trusts, corporations or other institutionalized entities. For us, farming is personal and we have a passionate, hands-on approach to every aspect of growing and marketing the white, yellow, red and sweet onion varieties we are known for.

They Had A Dream

More than 100 years ago, three ambitious and hopeful Italian immigrants chased a dream straight into the harbor of New York City. It was there, amid scores of excited, shouting passengers that the first leg of their voyage ended. And it was there that the real journey began.


The New World offered the three brothers (David Peri’s grandfather and his great uncles) the simple promise of opportunity -- that with a little luck and a lot of hard work, they could one day farm land of their own. Standing on that ship the brothers had no idea that their humble dreams would bear such amazing fruit just three generations later. It is still amazing to think that David’s grandfather’s quest to farm in America inspired a family-farming heritage that lead to the family farm we have today -- actually one of the biggest seed-to-store onion operations in the world.

Growth Rooted in Nevada
Even though Peri & Sons now farms thousands of acres, it is still basically the same hands-on family farm that it was when David began farming that first 100-acre field decades ago. Through hard work, dedication and perseverance, we’ve had the good fortune of building a successful farm business that produces over 500 million pounds of onions each year.
Growing a Community
As our farms have grown so has our commitment to our community. Together, Peri & Sons Farms and Nevada Fresh Pak, represent the largest private employer in Lyon County, currently supporting over 400 full-time diverse positions including specialists in the areas of agricultural science, engineering, manufacturing, and business and information technology. The company also supports a seasonal work force of over 2,100 full-time employees. Based on recent economic impact studies the company’s direct and indirect impact on the economy in Northern Nevada now exceeds $200 million.

Our California Farming

Since 1979 Yerington, Nevada has been the heart of our farming operation. Just as David knew it would be, the fertile land and unique climate of the Mason Valley proved perfect for growing high-quality onions between April and September. Our farmed acreage in Yerington has grown tremendously over the years and thankfully, so has the demand for our beautiful onions.


In 2007 when demand for our onions outgrew our Nevada seasonal capacity, David expanded the farming operation into California, again finding just the right conditions to grow the red, white, yellow and sweet onions we’ve become known for. Today, between our Nevada and California farming operations, we can supply our customers with Peri & Sons’ onions ALL YEAR ROUND. Which means you can find them in your local grocery store winter, summer spring and fall.

Our Happiness Initiative

As a certified sustainable farm, we continually work to improve the health and welfare of our land AND our people. Everyone at Peri & Sons Farms is considered a valuable resource. Our Sunshine & Happiness initiative is focused on creating an optimistic, caring company culture because we believe a positive work environment promotes better overall work and life satisfaction.
