Avanzino Farms has been in Reno since 1925. Today, Doug Avanzino continues his family’s ranching and farming tradition producing grass fed and finished beef along with corn, basil, summer squash, and a large variety of winter squash and pumpkins.

Avazino Farm’s sustainability program includes leaving crop residue along the ground to mitigate wind erosion by reducing the wind speeds at ground level and trapping moisture in the soil during the winter months. Their cattle graze in their fields to knock down some of the bigger crops and feast on the weeds.
