It all began in 1919 when Charles Frederick Fifer moved his family from the Shenandoah Valley of Virginia to the fertile lands of Kent County Delaware pursuing his passion to grow high quality fruits and vegetables. The moderate climate and hearty well draining soil of this agriculturally rich region provided ideal conditions for growing a diverse mix of fruits and vegetables including: peaches, pears, grapes, apples, tomatoes, potatoes, sweet corn, lima beans, asparagus, strawberries and more. Charles began with 300 acres of land and a belief in crop diversification, farmland stewardship and growing high quality produce. He understood that farming is inherently a gamble and that having all your eggs in one basket can lead to disaster. His vision was accurate and this philosophy is what has enabled the farm to weather many storms and challenges over the last 95+ years.
