In 2005 when The Nunes Company first approached us about the possibility of growing baby greens we had no idea our relationship would become what it is today.
In 2008, Tom Nunes (T5) and Mark Crossgrove came out for a visit and that’s when the relationship started. 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.”
Peri & Sons Farm/Nevada Fresh Pak 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 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.”Learn more about our cooling process >
