Farm Service Agency Loans: The Ins and Outs of Growing a Farm with Federal Loans

The National Young Farmers Coalition just released Farm Service Agency Loans: The Ins and Outs of Growing a Farm with Federal Loans, an illustrated guidebook for farmers looking to secure credit from USDA. 

Written from the perspective and curiosity of a young farmer, the guidebook helps farmers navigate the ins and outs of the loan process. It includes:

  • the story of the USDA’s Farm Service Agency;
  • a family tree of all the people who make loans at USDA through the Farm Service Agency;
  • descriptions of FSA’s different loan types;
  • charts with up-to-date interest rates and loan terms;
  • case studies from farmers who received FSA loans;
  • and information about all the ways farmers can get involved through USDA committees to influence and improve the loan process.
