A Message From Secretary of Agriculture Ed Kee

The Department of Agriculture has a dedicated staff that strives effectively and efficiently to accomplish our 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 serve as Secretary of Agriculture in the administration of Governor Jack Markell. The Department’s staff and I work diligently to provide quality, professional services to our state’s agricultural industry and our residents. Agriculture is facing a period of both great challenge and great opportunity, but we are blessed in Delaware to have both a strong farming community and a supportive administration that understands agriculture’s critical role in the economy of our state. 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.
