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.”

Zucchini Rollups with Goat Cheese
2 medium-size zucchini, washed and ends removed
4 ounces goat cheese, softened*
1 tablespoon olive oil
Salt and pepper, to taste
Preheat a grill or grill pan to medium.

Slice the zucchini lengthwise, so the slices are about 1/4-1/3 inch thick. Reserve the end pieces for another use. Brush one side of the zucchini slices with oil, season with salt and pepper and grill for about 3 minutes on one side. Brush the other side, flip, and grill for another two minutes. The zucchini should be slightly browned but not soggy. Set the slices aside for a few minutes to cool.

Once slightly cooled, lay the zucchini slices out on a flat dish or cutting board. Add about a tablespoon of goat cheese to each slice at the end of the slice. To make the rollups, start rolling the slices with goat cheese end and roll up the slices to the other end.

You can refrigerate and serve these chilled or at room temperature.

*To soften the goat cheese, just pull it out of the refrigerator about 20-30 minutes before assembling the rollups. Make the softened goat cheese easier to work with by putting in a small bowl and whipping with a fork to incorporate some air.
