Sen. Tom Carper visited the three-generation, family-operated Garey Farm in Felton on Sept. 15 with Delaware Department of Agriculture Deputy Secretary Kenny Bounds and Farm Services Agency Acting Director Robin Talley.

The group saw how Farm Service Agency loan products are helping to improve the Felton farm’s operations. The Garey Farm received a low-interest farm storage facility loan from FSA to build a grain storage facility, dryer and weigh station. Farm storage allows farmers to avoid selling grain when prices are at a seasonal low and helps them manage their income.
