Señor Piñon - Frank Gormley of Santa Fe

Contributed by

Santa Fe's Frank Gormley was one of the first people to sell piñon nuts on a large scale.  Between 1915 and 1939, 16,000 tons of piñon were legally harvested in the forests of New Mexico.  Most of these were shipped to New York and other major east coast cities, primarily to satisfy the demand of new Italian immigrants who used pine nuts as part of their diet.
