Venetucci Farm

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 2018

Due to the water contamination, we are not growing crops this year. We continue to steward the farm and its legacy. We are growing alfalfa grass to keep the fields vital, and will host guided birding hikes. The farm continues to be a research resource for local higher education institutions.

In June, The Quad Innovation Partnership will begana summer intensive program for local college students. The students’ task is to examine the best way to perpetuate Venetucci Farm as a community asset. We are excited to include a new generation in envisioning the farm’s future legacy.

Regular updates on the farm’s status and The Quad’s progress can be found on the PPCF facebook page.
