Green Energy Nevada, LLC. Announces Large Scale Production Facility in Hawthorne, NV

Hawthorne, Nev., March 28, 2014

Hawthorne, Nevada known as America’s Patriotic Home has a great new company to help diversify the economy of this small town in Western Nevada. ” The company brings to our community badly needed new jobs, a new industry for Nevada and an economic boost not only to Hawthorne, but all of Nevada,” said Shelley Hartmann, Executive Director of Mineral County Economic Development Authority a partner in Highway 95 RDA.

America’s Patriotic Home will soon be home to the first large scale pasture raised organic egg and meat production facility in Nevada. The pasture raised organic egg and meat industry will, within a short period of time, will be a leading segment of the $50 billion organic product industry.

Green Energy Nevada, LLC., an innovative company with proprietary processes for green energy, environmental, and ecological solutions has received final approval from the Mineral County Board of County Commissioners and the Planning Commission to move forward with producing pasture raised organic products in Hawthorne, NV within three months.

A large scale pasture raised, organic poultry operation is timely. Studies released by the Nevada Governor’s Office of Economic Development (GOED) and from focus groups with consumers and distributors defined opportunities for the pasture raised organic poultry markets in Nevada. Green Energy Nevada, LLC is focused on becoming the exclusive supplier of Nevada Grown pasture raised organic poultry products. “We believe by developing a reliable supply chain filled with healthier products and most likely at lower prices as well as proximity and business structure in Nevada. Such an alliance will be a tremendous boost to Nevada’s economy.” said Arvind Nair, Chief Operations Officer, Green Energy Nevada, LLC.

The company is projecting an initial investment of $20,000,000.00 into the Hawthorne community and will create 500 to 1,000 jobs in 2014. “Veterans, disabled workers, under-employed and unemployed area residents will be our initial hiring focus” said Nair. As a relatively new industry to the area, Green Energy Nevada has developed an employee training curriculum to meet or surpass USDA rules and certifying agencies criteria for this type of operation. Although, the company will provide the mandatory training at no cost, they realize a five weeks training program could cause economic hardship to the applicants. Currently the company is seeking assistance or available grants through State and or Federal programs to offset economic hardship for the applicants.

“We are pleased and excited to announce this agreement with Mineral County and the City of Hawthorne” said Domenick Fugarino, Chief Executive Officer. “Green Energy Nevada, would like to thank all of the individuals who helped us bring this idea to fruition including Nevada Governor Brian Sandoval, who heard about our company during a parade honoring Dr. Martin Luther King, Ms. Bonnie Lind and Mr. Todd Valline of GOED and Mrs. Shelley Hartmann and Mr. Bob Shriver of the Highway 95 Regional Development Authority who worked diligently to ensure our company will remain in the State of Nevada and locate in the Hawthorne area. We would like to extend a special thank-you to all the elected officials and their staff of Mineral County, the members of the Mineral County School District and faculty, and the residents and business leaders of Hawthorne. Once again the company stated, “thank you all very much for the warm welcome and support. From the associates of our company, and a collective “Yes Ma’am” to Commissioner Tipton’s order of “Get To Work”.

Green Energy Nevada, LLC., is planning a special graduation ceremony for the first group of employee trainees during Hawthorne’s Armed Forces Day celebration the 17th of May, 2014.

For more information regarding this company you may contact Ms. Shelley Hartmann at Mineral County Economic Development Authority a partner in Highway 95 RDA at 775-945-5896.

October is an exciting time in Fallon with the onset of fall and the area’s farms celebrating the changing of seasons. At Lattin Farms, fifth generation farmers Rick and B. Ann Lattin invite the public to enjoy the annual Fall Festival, bringing the rural Nevada town to life every Saturday throughout the month. Enjoy all that the Fallon-area farm has to offer with a quick trip one hour east of Reno and getaway before the holidays by enjoying some of northern Nevada’s best organic eats, getting lost in the corn maze, making your very own scarecrow and letting the kids get up close and personal with some friendly farm animals.

Enjoy a leisurely walk or compete with friends and family to see who can finish first in Lattin Farms’ corn maze, known as one of America’s largest. Upon entry, guests are given a list of questions to take into the maze where answers can be found at various points. Each year the maze is designed into an image that can be seen from above with past designs including an Ichthyosaur, Nevada’s state fossil, and fruits and vegetables spelling out “Know Your Farmer Know Your Food.” This year’s design is unveiled at the October 5 opening.

After completing the maze, take a hayride over to the pumpkin patch. While the kids meticulously scour the patch for the perfect jack-o-lantern, adults can select some savory sugar pumpkins, perfect for creating favorite fall and winter recipes.

The cow train is a big hit among the little ones and personal seats in hand-painted barrels make this ride a must-do. Not far away is Critterville. This area has fuzzy four-legged friends to feed and pet. Watch where you put those treats though – goats love to nibble on pockets filled with candy corn. The bounce house awaits after the petting zoo and face painting pleases kids of all ages.

Adults can bring out that inner child at the Scarecrow Factory by building life-size scarecrows ideal for outdoor décor. Get creative and replicate a loved one or famous actor or take a shot at creating a stuffed self-portrait. The result may not be effective at keeping birds away but it will be fun to make and take home.

All that activity sure does work up an appetite and Lattin Farms has got that covered too. With some of the area’s best produce, it’s a great place to shop for organic ingredients including raspberries, tomatoes, garlic, onions and squash. Or, if you’re ready to hit the road after a fun-filled day of fall-themed activities, downtown Fallon offers plenty of ways to fill your plate before heading home.

The Slanted Porch, owned by renowned chef Steve Hernandez, boasts its very own hoop house where seasonal produce is grown and used daily in the kitchen. Even the local Pizza Barn, owned and operated by Wolf Pack alumnus Roger Diedrichsen, serves up fresh, local ingredients on its hand-tossed pies including Heck’s Meats and produce from both Lattin and Workman farms.

The Lattin Farms Fall Festival is open from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. every Saturday from October 5-26. Lattin Farms is located at 1955 McLean Road in Fallon. For more information, call 775-867-3750 or visit www.lattinfarms.com.
