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.
