Preserving a Legacy
Venetucci Farm is more than a farm, its a community icon. For years, Nick and Bambi Venetucci opened up their fields to thousands of children to give away pumpkins. In 2006, PPCF took over the farm to preserve their legacy. We ensured the land would be protected forever, and that the pumpkin giveaway would continue after Nick and Bambi passed.
The Farm in 2017
The farm will continue its education programs and pumpkin giveaway in 2017 – these are important parts of perpetuating the Venetucci legacy.
We are not growing crops this year, but are instead looking at new ways the farm can be a vital community resource in the decades to come.
