RI Farm Service Agency

The Farm Service Agency traces its beginnings to 1933, in the depths of the Great Depression. Today, FSA’s responsibilities are organized into five areas: Farm Programs, Farm Loans, Commodity Operations, Management and State Operations. The agency continues to provide America’s farmers with a strong safety net through the administration of farm commodity programs. FSA also implements ad hoc disaster programs. FSA’s long-standing tradition of conserving the nation’s natural resources continues through the Conservation Reserve Program. The agency provides credit to agricultural producers who are unable to receive private, commercial credit. FSA places special emphasis on providing loans to beginning, minority and women farmers and ranchers. Its Commodity Operations division purchases and delivers commodities for use in humanitarian programs at home and abroad. FSA programs help feed America’s school children and hungry people around the globe. Additionally, the agency supports the nation’s disabled citizens by purchasing products made by these persons.
