Finding funding for your farm business can often times be the most difficult task for starting a farm business. Join Amanda Ritchey, Farm Loan Manager with the USDA’s Farm Service Agency (FSA), and USDA (United States Department of Agriculture) staff to learn more about the various resources available through USDA and their associated federal agencies including FSA, Rural Development, and NRCS (Natural Resources Conservation Service). Learn about low-cost loans, insurance programs, disaster payments, and more!

This event is part of the 2016-2017 L.E.A.F. (Learn. Empower. Achieve. Farm.) Workshop Series. The L.E.A.F. (Learn. Empower. Achieve. Farm.) Program is made possible through the generous support of the Chautauqua Region Community Foundation. The L.E.A.F. (Learn. Empower. Achieve. Farm.)
