About Us

Alstede Farms wishes to convey our commitment to provide you with the finest quality fruits and vegetables.

Alstede Farms, LLC was founded by Kurt Alstede in 1982.  Mr. Alstede was raised in Chester and is a first generation farmer.  Alstede Farms cultivates over 600 acres of land in Chester using sustainable and certified organic farming methods.  Apples, Peaches, strawberries, raspberries, currants, gooseberries, pumpkins, many specialty vegetables, corn and tomatoes are sold at our Route 513 retail market and at the tailgate markets we attend daily.  The farm has over 13,000 square feet of greenhouses.  Inside these houses over 200 different varieties of ornamental products are grown. In addition to the ornamental crops we grow, we also grow all the vegetable transplants that we plant in the field.  Nearly every acre we farm is permanently preserved in the Farmland Preservation Program.
