Quail Hollow Farm

Quail Hollow Farm has prevailed over the harsh growing conditions and meager profit margins that have kept Southern Nevada from jumping on the CSA trend in a significant way. Only about a half-dozen of these co-op farms, which deliver food to paying members on a regular basis, are thriving here. Among them, Quail Hollow is the most established, having been founded by Laura and Monte Bledsoe in 2006. For an annual fee of $1,440, members receive weekly baskets of locally grown, organic, seasonal produce ($765 gets you a basket every other week) from their farm in Moapa Valley, 50 miles north of Las Vegas. Quail Hollow also produces honey, eggs and even meat. The Bledsoes’ success comes in part from building community among members, who are encouraged to volunteer and attend events such as cider-pressing parties and the annual Farm to Fork dinner.

Best Place to Learn a Traditional Skill

Perhaps you want to expand on an already accomplished life skill such as quilting, or you seek a beginner’s guide to sewing, or maybe you simply desire a girlie get-together off the Strip. Then Dewey Street awaits you. Founders Cindy and her daughters Lindsay and Laurie grew up on threads and glue and inherited the creative gene from Joan Faust, mother and grandmother of the crafty trio, respectively. Faust lived on Dewey Street in West Springfield, Massachusetts, and inspired the women to turn trash into treasures.
