Aliabaad is located on 4040 Mills Road in historic Sharpsburg, Maryland (in the backyard of the historic Antietam Battlefield) only 25 minutes west of Fredrick and a short drive south of the Hagerstown Outlets.

In pursuit of a childhood dream the Aliabaad Farm was established, May 7, 2007. Through gradual and sustainable growth Aliabaad Farm is slowly expanding and continuing to offer quality items as well as meeting growing demand for fresher and tastier produce.

“We are taking small steps to expand our product offerings to people like us who are interested in fresh and organic products. I hope by taking the approach of quality first and quantity second we can continue to expand our circle of friends and customers while maintaining a high degree of quality,” says Ali Mohadjer, owner and operator.

Last year was a very rewarding year, we are grateful to our friends and customers who participated in our CSA Program and/or purchased our produce from super markets, as well as the direct email orders. While this year we have been challenged with constant weather changes in our area, we feel confident that this will be another great year with our major additional expansion, the produce center at the farm.
This year will be the fifth year of our farming; we are pleased to be ranked as one of the top quality growers in the state of Maryland (Washington County) and to be named Washington County’s Farm of the Year for 2013. Our goal is to continue our efforts in producing high quality products during the entire year by planting various seasonal vegetables both in the field and in our green houses.

In the coming year we are striving to ease the purchasing process for everyone in four major ways:

How does your CSA work?

Regular Season (May through October): The growing season provides approximately 22 to 26 weeks of fresh produce (weather permitting). Every week you will be allotted enough fresh fruits and vegetables to feed a family of four. At the beginning of every week an email will be sent out telling you what will be available for harvesting so you can be aware of what to expect to receive that week. You pick up your produce once a week at Aliabaad Farm or we can drop your order off in a mutually agreed location. Produce is picked the same day you arrive or on the same day we deliver. In addition to your weekly produce allotment, you will also be eligible to receive a dozen of our fresh organic eggs every other week!

All qualified CSA participants are welcome to volunteer to work on the farm in order to learn more about the process of growing.

How much produce will I receive each week?

Every week you will be allotted enough fresh fruit and vegetable to feed an average family of four, plus one dozen free-range organic eggs every other week.

Below you will find a variety of images taken by CSA members of their shares throughout the last couple years. Please use them as examples of share sizes and see the wide variety of produce you may receive each week.

Do I have to live in Sharpsburg to sign up?

Absolutely not! We deliver to Montgomery and Washington County. If there are 5 or more weekly CSA members, we will consider delivering to a mutually agreed central location.
