New to Farming Because of the Pandemic? USDA Can Help

 

USDA Service Centers across the country, are hearing from people who are interested in more space and working the land and we want to let you know we can help. Are you USDA can help you get started in farming – on everything from helping you register your farm to getting financial assistance and advice. 

Get Started with USDA

First, you want to make sure your farm is registered. If you purchased land, it might already be established with USDA’s Farm Service Agency (FSA) with a farm number on file. If not, FSA can help you register your farm.

To obtain a farm number, you’ll bring an official tax ID (Social Security number or an employer ID) and a property deed. If you do not own the land, bring a lease agreement to your FSA representative to show you have control of the property. If your operation is incorporated or an entity, you may also need to provide proof that you have signature authority and the legal ability to enter into contracts with USDA.
