Joe Freitas, whose fine dairy farm is located about a mile south of Napa, is one of the public spirited citizens
of Napa county and withholds his cooperation from no movement which is intended to promote public advancement.
What he has achieved in life proves the force of his character and steadfastness of purpose, and the position of
credit and honor which he holds in his locality is the direct outcome of his persistent and worthy labors.
Mr. Freitas was born in Portugal on the 10th of July, 1880, and is a son of Manuel and Rosa (Furala) Freitas. He
was reared and educated in his native land and remained there until 1898, when he immigrated to California, locating
at San Rafael. There he remained for two years, engaged in the dairy business, and subsequently he was engaged
in the same business at San Francisco for four years. At the end of that time he went to San Mateo, where he remained
for two years. In 1918 Mr. Freitas came to Napa county and located on a farm a mile south of Napa, and here he
has successfully conducted a dairy business to the present time, now having a herd of about one hundred and sixty
cows. A man of judgment, sound discretion and business ability of a high order, he has managed his affairs with
success and has so impressed his individuality upon the community as to gain recognition among its leading citizens.
