Come and join us for a trio of ag stops on the outskirts of Las Vegas, Nevada!

Guests of this unique tour will enjoy visits to the following:

  • Las Vegas Livestock LogoLas Vegas Livestock
    Sustainability is always a priority of this farm. The family has close ties to the desert and understand the importance in conserving resources as well as keeping food out of the landfill. LVL works with resorts to take food waste and feed it to their livestock, mainly the hogs. LVL raises about 25,000 pigs, 1,000 head of cattle, and 500 goats and sheep.
  • Moapa Valley High School FarmMoapa Valley High School
    The second stop will take attendees to a 40-acre farm run by the agriculture program at Moapa Valley High School. With the support of a farm manager, agriculture educators and students, the farm at Moapa Valley High School rivals some of the most successful small-scale diversified farms in the nation. Attendees will also learn a little about the history of agriculture in the Moapa Valley.
  • Bill Northey at Hardy FarmsHardy Farms
    Last but not least, the tour will visit the nearby Hardy Farms, which remains one of the last holdouts in selling water rights to the City of Las Vegas. The farm has worked with USDA to test techniques aimed at optimizing alfafa production, land leveling, irrigation efficiency, and more.

You won't want to miss this whirlwind look at ag taking place right near Sin City!
