New Kent Count Ag Agent

Drew Harris, Kent Co. Ag Agent,

My name is Drew Harris and I am thrilled to be the Kent County Ag Agent for the University of Delaware. I first began my journey long ago as a member of the Delaware 4-H Youth Development Program in Kent County. My projects focused on livestock, particularly swine and sheep while I also worked on poultry. During High School I was heavily involved in FFA and continued the projects that I was involved with in 4-H. After High School I attended Delaware Valley University where I majored in Ag Business with a concentration in Crop Science. Throughout my time at Delaware Valley University, I did research on silage corn varieties and beneficial microbes. The last two years I worked at Growmark FS, LLC in Milford where I provided recommendations for cash sale customers and assisted salespeople on pricing items. I also currently serve as the assistant superintendent of the Poultry Department at the Delaware State Fair. I am beyond excited to begin my work in extension and nurture relationships throughout the area. I look forward to meeting and working with everyone in the coming year.
