The Farmers’ Legal Action Group (FLAG) has produced an excellent guide for farmers interested in the Farm Service Agency’s Microloan Program. Learn more and download a free copy of the guide here.
The US Department of Agriculture’s farm programs are administered on the local level through county-based Farm Service Agency (FSA) offices. The FSA provides and administers farm loans, crop insurance, and disaster assistance compensation. You must register your farm with the FSA to be eligible for any of these programs.
