In addition to being beautiful, our Nevada WhitesTM are full of flavor and surprisingly, they generally taste sweeter than most Spanish yellow onions. The unique climate of the Mason Valley, with its warm dry days and crisp clear nights, helps to give our onions their unique pearlescent coloring, globe shape and firm feel. Nowhere else do white onions grow like ours do here.
Our heritage of earth-friendly farming and land stewardship spans back three generations. Even in the early days of establishing Peri & Sons Farms, David Peri understood that the livelihood of the business, and of those who depended on the success of his business, was directly tied to the health and well-being of the environment.

We strive to continually improve efficiency in every aspect of our business. While we consider ourselves caretakers of the land, just as importantly, we understand the importance of taking care of our people. In addition to becoming a cleaner, more efficient and environment-friendly farm, we proudly provide programs designed to enhance worker welfare and wellbeing.

Sustainability Mission Statement

We are committed to growing good things with integrity by embedding sustainable principles and practices into everything we do. We strive to cultivate the highest environmental and ethical leadership standards as we foster our efforts and are mindful of vital resources for future needs.

“God bless you for keeping your family heritage alive. I discovered your onions from “Fresh Thyme”, a new grocery store in Mishawaka, Indiana. Looking forward to hearing from you each month.” -- N. Yohe
Our technology and experience enables us to size and sort faster and with more accuracy, which means we can more efficiently pack the right size and variety of onions to meet our customer’s needs.

Growing Better in Every Way, Every Day.
White onions were the first crop that David Peri planted when he started Peri & Sons Farms. Now, 40 years later, David’s Nevada WhitesTM are a highly sought-after onion in the produce industry. David believes that the unique conditions in Yerington, Nevada -- our warm, dry days and crisp, clear nights -- help to give our onions their unique pearlescent coloring, globe shape and firm feel.
