Lattin Farms has been selling produce since the mid-50s. Since 1977, the family has pioneered the production of red raspberries in Nevada and the Old-Fashioned Roadside Produce Stand has been in operation since 1989. Surprisingly, the warm desert days and cool, high-altitude night allow the full flavor of fruits like berries and melons to thrive. Such conditions have made the Fallon area regionally famous for the Hearts of Gold Cantaloupe, which has an unparalleled sweetness.
About 15 years ago, Rick and his wife B.Ann, set up a little stand across the driveway from their front door, reminiscent of those commonly seen years ago at dusty crossroad of country suburbs. Regular customers have come to expect and appreciate the fresh, high-quality produce and friendly service at the produce stand right on the farm! Locals as well as hundreds of out-of-town visitors anticipate its opening every year. As time rolled forward, the reputation of the quality of produce from the farm became well known. Now tens of thousands of loyal customers return every year to pick from the fresh produce, gourmet jams, hand-made breads and dill pickles.
Today Rick and B.Ann and their family are still very much involved in growing food to live- for their family and others. Now onto the 5th generation the Lattin family has assured that great farm traditions will continue for years to come. But, they believe their purpose has extended?that is, to share the respect they have, and the pleasure they receive, from experiences on the Farm–from challenges, accomplishments, education, enrichment, and most of all, fun.
The Lattin Family has enjoyed all this for years, and now wants to share it with you through programs such as the Corn Maze, the Old-Fashioned Roadside Produce Stand, Farmers Markets and B.Ann’s Flower and Herb Garden. We hope you enjoy your visit with us!
Read the complete history of Lattin Farms. If you’re in the area or will be visiting soon, you’re welcome to come out to the farm and take a self-guided tour. You will find fact boards about some of the animals posted around the lawn. You can also tour our collection of antique farm equipment.
This is what do we best! We are a farm after all. We grow all kinds of produce in both the traditional farming method and organic; both are excellent.
We pick the produce for you and you can pick it up at the Produce Stand at the farm or at one of the Farmers Markets we participate in. If you like to do the picking yourself we also offer a pick-your-own garden where you can bring the whole family and pick just what you want.
