In his weekly message, filmed at the Delaware State Fair, Governor Markell highlights the importance of fostering global relationships in order to strengthen the agriculture industry in Delaware.
The State Fair is one of my favorite events of the year. It brings Delawareans together in a way few other experiences can.

The hard work of our 25-hundred farmers and their families will generate $8 billion in economic activity this year.
