Peri & Sons farms opens new state-of-the-art organic produce facility
YERINGTON, Nev. (News 4 & Fox 11) —
Peri & Sons farms has opened a new distribution center, using state-of-the-art equipment in Yerington as part of their nine-year partnership with the Nunes Company.
The facility is a way to increase production, as well as keep the distribution side of the business in Nevada instead of shipping vegetables to California.
Peri & Sons will continue to oversee the farming and production of organic vegetables, while the Nunes Company will oversee cooling and marketing.
The farms produce over 65 million pounds of organic produce annually, and supply grocery stores nationwide, including Wal-Mart's 'Marketside' brand.
