Markell meets with young farmers

Members of the state’s Young Farmers program will meet with Governor Markell and Delaware Ag. Secretary Ed Kee.
 The young farmers will also meet with lawmakers to celebrate the success of the program designed to help young farmers acquire farmland through a long-term, no-interest loan.  The program created ten new farms on more than 900 acres in Kent and Sussex Counties.  The celebration will be held at the University of Delaware’s Research and Education Center in Georgetown.
