Welcome to the Delaware Department of Agriculture website.  Please use this as a means of learning more about the Department and its services and more about Delaware Agriculture.  The Department has a dedicated staff that strives effectively and efficiently to accomplish the Department’s mission, which is to sustain and promote the viability of food, fiber, and agricultural industries in Delaware through quality services that protect and enhance the environment, health, and welfare of the general public.

I am honored to have been appointed as your new Secretary of Agriculture, by Governor Jack Markell.  The Department and I want to work with you in the same tradition of providing quality services, hard work, and professionalism that was established by my predecessors, Jack Tarburton and Michael Scuse.  In the coming months, agriculture, like other areas of the economy, will be facing challenging times. We will meet these challenges cooperatively, as a team, to continue to sustain and grow Delaware’s agriculture that is so vital to our quality of life. 

Please note that my door is always open and I am ready to listen.
