Agriculture & Natural Resources

The goal of DSU Extension’s Agriculture & Natural Resources Program is to help improve the economic viability of small farm enterprises across Delaware. Our program specializes in assisting small farm families through one-on-one farm visits, workshops, research, and demonstrations.

We are the Delaware resource for alternative markets such as aquaculture, ethnic vegetables, high tunnels, meat goats, pole lima beans, Profiting from a Few Acres and small flock poultry. The program staff can also assist with farm and financial management issues, accessing USDA program services, direct marketing, sustainable agriculture practices and on-farm research.
