USDA FSA Farm Loan Program

Attention farmers:
Agricultural producers throughout CT often struggle with limited lending options for their farm operations. The USDA Farm Service Agency has programs available to support farmers who are unable to obtain commercial credit for a multitude of reasons. Loans are available for both real estate and operating purposes and can serve both long-standing family farms and those just
starting out.
If you are interested in hearing more about our loan programs or to see where your farm may fit in with the program’s mission, please reach out to our office in Norwich, CT. We look forward to hearing from you!

Thank you – Carolyn, Melanie & Skye
