High schoolers visit New Castle farm

William Penn High School students head to the farm today and tomorrow to learn more about agriculture and business.
The students will also hear from William Penn alumnus, Delaware Secretary of Agriculture Edward Kee this morning.  Kee will talk to the students about Delaware’s agribusiness industry.  The students will tour Penn Farm, best known to many as Quigley Farm on Route 273 and Frenchtown Road in New Castle.  The 112-acre farm is now operated by Delaware Greenways.
