Program Description
FSA has an array of programs to assist small farmers/ranchers to be viable operators. From the beginning farmers program to the youth program, the Agency can afford a new and young, as well as experienced farmer, a foundation to a successful career in agriculture production, marketing, and alternative enterprises.

Through its farm ownership and operating loans, Conservation Reserve Programs, and support payment programs FSA is unmatched in providing financial assistance to the Nation's small farmers who are unable to qualify for commercial credit. The Agency provides up to date information to these small farmers through a comprehensive outreach program. Through this outreach program, farmers are introduced to services provided by other USDA and non-USDA agencies, as well as, the nomination, election, and decision making processes of the County Committee.
