Avanzino Farms has been in Reno since 1925. George Avanzino, spent 84 years living in the Reno area where he owned and operated Avanzino Farms\Ranch. George’s son, Doug Avanzino, is continuing the tradition of his family’s farm. Avazino’s Farm sustainability program includes leaving crop residue along the ground so during the winter and spring storms, the soil doesn’t incur much wind erosion. Their cattle graze in the fields to knock down some of the bigger crops and feast on the weeds. During harvest season you will find corn, basil, and various summer squash: zucchini, yellow squash, and patty pans to name a few. In the fall they will have pumpkins, winter squash: acorn, spaghetti and butternut along with other varieties.
