Against the Grain Farm has grown from a humble beginning to a strong Community Support Agriculture (CSA) farm in Northern Delaware. Our goal is to provide fresh, quality food grown in a sustainable and natural manner. We recognize we have an obligation to our community, customers, and employees to be responsible stewards of the land. Against the Grain Farm does not use any petroleum based insecticides or herbicides. Only organic sprays are used when necessary. Plants are protected by beneficial bugs, row covers, and the use of top quality plants. Against the Grain Farm uses cover crops for erosion control and soil amendment. Crop rotation is utilized to encourage diversity and to discourage disease.
After 5 years in Middletown moved to Historic Penn Farm, managed by Delaware Greenways, to continue growing great produce in 2016. As with many CSA farms we rely on the purchasing of CSA shares in order for the farm to function. If we did not have our shareholders we would not be able to provide naturally grown produce to the region. Please check out our Vegetable CSA and other CSA options, here.
