USDA recently launched a new web tool designed to connect new farmers with USDA programs and resources available to help them get started: www.usda.gov/newfarmers.
The site features advice and guidance on everything a new farm business owner will need to know, and even includes a personalized Discovery Tool that builds a customized set of recommendations of USDA programs and services based on your needs. Deputy Agriculture Secretary Krysta Harden says it’s part of the USDA’s goal of increasing farmer and rancher participation in its key programs. She says, “It’s really exciting for us to be able to offer this kind of information, literally at your fingertips for folks interested in agriculture.” Harden says it’s a huge upgrade from the current web tool.
