Nyala, the ghost town that our farm is named from, was settled in the 1860s as a rest stop for travelers. A well at the site provided water for the horse teams that traveled through hot and dry Railroad Valley. In 1913 a settlement began to form that included a ranch as well as a boardinghouse, a general store, and a restaurant. The ranch has had several owners throughout the years, and many of the original buildings are in use today.We are proud of our heritage, and the well that provided water for weary travelers a century ago now grows the best in organic Nevada produce. Nyala Gardens is a second generation family owned farm, dedicated to producing the finest organic produce. Located in the high desert of South Central Nevada, our hot days and cold nights produce extraordinarily sweet and flavorful melons and squash. Our produce is grown in native soils that have never been treated with chemical fertilizers or herbicides. Our water seeps down from the towering mountains to be finely filtered through volcanic rock into our pure cold water aquifer. We are Nevada Department of Agriculture GAP certified and USDA ORGANIC Certified.
