Vito Pietanza and Rosa Riccio Pietanza were both born in Mola di Bari (Puglia) Italy. They arrived in NYC at young ages and lived in a community in Red Hook Brooklyn (later to become Carroll Gardens).
Vito’s family celebrates a long tradition in agriculture. Soon after Vito and Rosa were married (and later with their 3 children) they would spend a few weeks during the summer in Mola on the Pietanza family farm. It then became a tradition for them to spend several hours a day engaging in the almond harvest.
Via photos and videos, Vito and Rosa want to share with you their love and passion for the almond harvest and for everything “Almond”.
