Also known as a major dairy producer, livestock, including pigs, and other related products account for 70% of Delaware’s farm income with “Broilers” (young chickens) contributing the largest portion of Delaware's farm income.

Soybeans are Delaware's most important farm crop followed by corn, although farmers also grow barley and wheat. Potatoes and peas highlight the State, as its largest vegetable crops but many other vegetables and fruits including a large variety of apples (Delaware's largest fruit crop) are found at the many local farmers’ markets. Greenhouse and nursery products, flowers, ornamental shrubs and young plants are also cultivated. Make the effort to visit the following markets to support our local farmers.
