New Castle County Residents Tour Southern DE Farms

Jul 17, 2013 -- 12:55am

Over 160 Delawareans got a look at farm life – and learned more about where their food comes from as they took a bus tour sponsored by ShopRite Grocery stores.  Delaware Ag Secretary Ed Kee tells WGMD about 200 people signed up for the tour.  The tour visited 3 Delaware farms who are all growers for ShopRite – Fifer Orchards in Camden, TS Smith & Son and Evans Farm both in Bridgeville.  The ShopRite stores include information for shoppers on where the locally grown foods come from – and now some of the shoppers have a better idea on how they can support the community by purchasing the locally grown foods as well.
