In Delaware, we have a number of farm
enterprises that are in place in both the
"small" farm and the "large" farm
settings. The agricultural economy in
Delaware is fortunate to be based on a
diverse group of crop and livestock
opportunities and to be in close
proximity to large urban markets.
Over 50 percent of Delaware farmers
have a significant off-farm income.
Many of these families have at least one
spouse working off the farm, some have
two. Poultry, grain, vegetables, and
ornamental crops are produced as a
part-time enterprise in these situations.
Majority of Extension Programs are
implemented through the County
Extension Offices in Delaware.
