In the early 1900's, Maria and Dominic Petrocco began farming in Hanna, Wyoming shortly after their voyage from the region of Abruzzo, Italy. They grew only enough vegetables to feed their family. When Dominic Petrocco passed away, his sons Albert and John were only eight and ten years old. The boys began working for the farm at this time and later dedicated their entire lives to helping it grow immensely. Albert Petrocco continued on to farm. He and his family resided in the North Denver area where he and wife Giovanna “Jenny” Petrocco had four children who all were raised around the farm. Seeking a new farming location, north Denver became a landing point for the next 30 years as the responsibilities of the farm were later assumed by Albert's children. By 1980, the farm comprised of 1,000 acres, now in Brighton, Colorado and the surrounding areas. David Petrocco Sr. took ownership of the business after his father's death in 1985.
Petrocco Farms now farms on 3,000+ acres of land.
