Farming since 1896

Delaware Valley University has been farming for 125 years. We started as the National Farm School in 1896 with a mission of educating young men in both the science and practice of farming. This was the vision of our founder, Rabbi Dr. Joseph Krauskopf, who believed that farming was the answer to the growing immigrant poverty in major cities in the United States. His vision lives today in our award winning Experience360 program – where 100% of DelVal students graduate with real-world experience on their resume.
