Introduction

What Is A Pizza Farm?

Cono and his wife, Angela Vertuccio and their two little helpers, Joseph and Anthony are keeping tradition alive. Vertuccio’s Farms was first started by Cono’s parents Joe and Maria who immigrated to America from Italy. After moving to New York, they made enough money to invest in 40 acres of land in Chandler Arizona. Vertuccio’s Farm is now a little slice of heaven on earth, transformed into a pizza farm that is one half acre circular garden that is divided into eight pie shaped "slices" (similar to a pizza) and produces all the ingredients to make farm fresh pizza!
