The Nevada Department of Agriculture (NDA) and Made in Nevada are seeking nominations for Nevada's food, beverage and agriculture small businesses. Since before the establishment of our first towns in 1851 this sector has been a backbone of our communities, and has helped support and grow the Silver State. From cattle ranches, sheep operations, melon farms, pinion harvesters, dairies, snack makers, breweries, or bakeries (to name a few) these small businesses embody the best in the West. 

In order to recognize the contributions these small businesses have on our state the NDA and Made in Nevada have come together to annually recognize excellence in this industry. You can help us highlight a business that works tirelessly for our community, or produces your favorite food, or beverage product. Nominate them today and help us honor the best food, beverage, and agriculture operations in Nevada.
