Located on the southwestern edge of Colorado Springs, this historic 190 acre urban farm, known as the “Pumpkin Farm”, was established by the Venetucci Family in 1936. In later years, Nick and Bambi Venetucci were known for giving away thousands of pumpkins each fall to area school children. The Pikes Peak Community foundation is thrilled to keep that tradition alive today. Wanting to preserve this valuable piece of land as a farm, the Venetuccis put it into conservancy and gifted it to the Pikes Peak Community Foundation in 2006. Thanks to the generosity of the Venetucci Family and the Pikes Peak Community Foundation, Venetucci Farm is a working farm committed to growing healthy food and providing positive experiences for the Colorado Springs community. Mission Statement We use our head, heart, and hands to grow and distribute healthy food for our community in a way that conserves, protects, and restores the natural environment. We provide meaningful educational and volunteer work experiences to re-connect people with the source of their food, to foster community awareness of food issues, and to enhance community health. We honor the legacy of Nick and Bambi Venetucci, and the spirit of generosity reflected in the principles of the Pikes Peak Community Foundation.
