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 Obscure Dining Experience

Bet Kenyan cuisine doesn’t come to mind when someone asks you about an ethnic dining experience. Wine 5 Café specializes in the foods from this East African nation—a delicious spin on chicken curry; a steamed white polenta, ugali, which looks like an enormous corn muffin, served with the wine-braised strips of beef called nayama; and the pastry triangles called samosas, which you’ll find impossible to stop eating.
