The Farmers

Four Generations of Farming History
James Joseph Chinchiolo immigrated from Palermo, Italy to the East Coast, settling in in Massachusetts in 1912 as a fruit dealer. By 1918, he had founded The Chinchiolo Fruit Company with his brothers and set forth the path for future generations of Chinchiolos. Well before the Great Depression, The Chinchiolo Fruit Company, had begun growing grapes, figs, celery, pears, and cherries establishing the family's roots in farming and agriculture.
