Buy From Your Neighbor is a program begun by New Castle County Executive Chris Coons to encourage consumers, wholesalers, retailers and restaurants to seek out and purchase Delaware-grown products. Look and ask for Buy From Your Neighbor products where you shop.

It is vital that we maintain the viability of our local farms by supporting the purchase of locally-grown products. We want to send a message that farms are critical to the quality of life we cherish in the county.

A strong farm economy creates local jobs, provides nutritious food and preserves the close-knit communities of our state.
