In 1904 Biase Rossi, a dairy farmer by trade, came from Italy to the United States and settled in Welby, Colorado. With help from his son, Angelo they started a small dairy farm and initially raised only a few mixed vegetables to help feed their family and several other families in the area.
What started as a small vegetable garden eventually grew so large that in 1932 Rossi Produce opened their own shipping dock and shipped to the U.S. Army and supplied produce to wholesalers in the Denargo Market in Denver,
Biase and sons Angelo, Lawrence, and Frank Rossi continued to grow produce and milk cows in Welby, Colorado. Several decades later in 1980 Frank’s son Ray Rossi moved Rossi Produce to Hudson, Colorado.
For the last 37 years, Rossi Produce has continued growing the very best produce that Colorado has to offer. They farm over 500 acres of summer squash, winter squash, pie pumpkins, ornamental items, and pumpkins. Also, They still raise 500 plus acres in forage for neighboring dairy farms.
With quality as their main focus they are heavy into crop rotation each year and have recently built a new fully refrigerated processing and packing facility. Everything packed and harvested is hand picked and packaged to ensure our customers receive only the finest and best possible produce on delivery.
The 5th generation for Rossi Produce, Vince and Lee are continuing to grow and develop the business in the Rossi tradition.
