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 Nevadas 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.”

Local Produce Supports Local People
Nevada Fresh Pak believes “Nevada’s Future is Fresh™”. In 2006 David created a new company, with partner Leo Bergin, called Nevada Fresh Pak--with a mission to grow USDA Certified organic leafy greens for a select clientele. In just a few years the original 500 acres of greens tripled in size and overall production expanded to include growing, packing and shipping over thirty varieties of organic leafy greens, vegetables and herbs.

Several years ago David secured a strategic partnership to grow for a national customer, which enabled expansion and will ensure future success of the organic leafy greens and vegetable program. Today Nevada Fresh Pak farms hundreds of acres and represents more than quarter of the company’s overall farming business.

Due to the success of their partnership, Peri & Sons and Nunes Company have joined forces to build a state-of-the-art cooling and distribution facility in Yerington, Nevada. The new Walker River Cooling facility will begin operation in May 2017 and will service retailers, wholesalers and other buying organizations throughout North America.

Together, Peri & Sons Farms and Nevada Fresh Pak, farm about 12,000 acres between Nevada and California. The company is now the largest employer in Lyon County--currently supporting over 220 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 1,400 full-time employees. Based on recent economic impact studies the company’s direct and indirect impact on the economy in Northern Nevada now exceeds $130 million.

The leafy greens and vegetables we grow in Nevada’s sunny and arid climate are naturally less susceptible to the kinds of mildews and molds that can affect greens and vegetables grown in other moister environments. As a result, we experience fewer problems and  can obtain better quality overall.
