The trials and tears of life have done little to diminish this family’s faith in the Lord and their passion for agriculture. What began more than 40 years ago when a high school boy got a job picking apples, has led to an 800-acre fruit and vegetable farm in the shadow of New York City. A must listen story of grit, determination, and hope… when all looked lost.
Alstede Farms grows over 250 varieties of fruits and vegetables on over 400 acres. Farmer Kurt W. Alstede inspects the upcoming strawberry crops.
Farmer Kurt W. Alstede poses with one of the fifty varieties of apples grown on his farm. High bush blueberries are also grown on the farm and are open for guest visitors to pick their own in season.
The entire Alstede Family is dedicated to providing families with opportunities to learn how food is grown while providing memorable farm experiences.
Truly an amazing story, an inspiring thread weaving a tapestry in the fabric of God’s gallery displayed to extend the glory of following His will.
Thanks so much for this interview Ray. What a story. It’s amazing how The Lord works. My mother’s family is from New Jersey so we have ties there and I remember visiting my mother’s cousins who relocated to Vermont.
Keep up the good work!
