Duffield’s Farm Market
Duffield’s legacy all started when David’s father, Claude, purchased the original parcel back in 1930. He raised mostly fruits and vegetables which were packed and sold to the market in Philadelphia. He farmed the land until his death in 1953. It was at this time that David took over the farm and purchased additional land adjacent to his father’s farm. David continued to raise the same produce as his father. However, as it became increasingly difficult for David to support his family, Mary decided to sell strawberries on their front porch. As demand grew, David built a small market out of four posts and a roof and began to sell a variety of fruits and vegetables.Through several expansions, Duffield’s Farm Market has grown into the large market that it is today, including a bakery & deli.
The farm has also added many outdoor activities in both the Spring & Fall seasons including, birthday parties, hayrides, and educational field trips. Duffield’s farm is also family managed and run year round with several seasonal migrant workers during the busy season.
