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.”

Chicken Pesto Flatbread Sandwiches
Ingredients
Chicken Ingredients:
2 tablespoons Italian parsley, finely minced
4 cloves garlic, finely minced
1 teaspoon honey
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper
3 tablespoons olive oil, divided
1 large boneless, skinless chicken breast

Sandwich Ingredients:
2 large whole-wheat, store-bought flatbreads, pita or naan
1/2 cup store-bought roasted red peppers, drained and sliced into strips
4 tablespoons store-bought pesto sauce
4 slices Provolone cheese
1 cup loosely packed baby spinach leaves, washed and dried
Directions
Marinade the chicken: combine first 5 ingredients and 1 tablespoon of olive oil in a non-reactive bowl. Tenderize the chicken with a meat mallet or the back of a large, heavy mug in between two pieces of waxed paper. Put chicken in the bowl with the marinade, cover, and refrigerate for two hours or up to four.

Once the chicken is ready, preheat a grill pan or your grill to medium. Grill chicken until just beginning to brown on the outside, about five minutes. Turn chicken and grill until cooked through. Pull chicken off of heat and let rest for 10 minutes. Once chicken has rested, slice into strips.

To make the sandwiches, layer chicken, peppers, pesto, cheese and spinach on half of bread. Fold over to make a sandwich and serve immedately or wrap in wax paper and chill to eat later.
