Founded by Armenian settlers evading the Armenian genocide, Davidian Bros. Farm has been in operation since 1918. With only a small parcel of land to work with, David Davidian (founder) and his son Kerop grew and provided fresh fruits and vegetables for the community and delivered fresh produce to Worcester and Boston Markets.
As time went on David’s son Kerop realized he had a passion for farming. He spent his time tending to the fields and growing top-notch produce, which was sold out of a small store front located at the family’s garage on top of Ball Hill. Kerop had four children and his two sons Ed and Dave Davidian took great interest in keeping the family business running and growing for the future. As their families continued to grow, Kerop, Ed and David agreed it would be wise to invest and purchase surrounding land. This land amounts to just over 250 acres – all of which is still being used today.
Building a farmstand in the 1980s located just off of Ball Hill on Church Street is the turning point of the family business. With an increase in production and overall farming in the 1990s it was clear we needed to renovate our farm stand to accommodate for the increase of productivity and giving the customer a greater experience. Ed and Dave had kids of their own in which Michael (Ed Davidian’s son), David J. Davidian and Matthew Davidian (David Davidian’s sons) took interest in the farming business turning the family business into a 4th generation farm.
If you visit Davidian Bros. Farm today, you will notice we have a large variety of fresh fruits and vegetables straight from our fields a stone throw away. Don’t forget to check out our bakery, deli, ice cream stand and petting zoo/play area for a fun filled day!
