The Farm

In addition to acting as a demonstration and research resource in Nevada, DFI operates a year round commercial farm producing a large variety of vegetables and fruit.

Produce is available to the public via the Great Basin Community Food Co-op DROPP and the Riverside Farmers Market.  We also sell our produce to UNR Campus dining and Renown Health.

During the summer and fall growing season, DFI also runs a Farm Stand . We are proud to offer fresh, locally grown fruits and vegetables to the community while supporting university students.
