Welcome to the Alabama Farm Service Agency. It is an honor and privilege to have the opportunity to serve as your State Executive Director. Agriculture is Alabama's largest industry, contributing nearly $5 billion to the State's economy each year. With over 48,000 farms covering nine million acres, wherever you look in Alabama, you see agriculture. Some of the best agricultural products in the world are grown in Alabama, from poultry and peanuts to sweet potatoes and catfish. At least fifty different commercial crops and livestock are produced in Alabama.
Our primary mission at FSA is to assist Alabama’s farmers and ranchers to secure the greatest possible benefit from programs administered by FSA, such as farm loans, commodity price support, disaster relief, conservation, and other available resources. The hard working men and women of Alabama’s 45 county offices are at the forefront of our efforts, and they remain the primary contact for program participation and related questions.
Please visit our website periodically to obtain the most up-to-date agriculture information affecting you.
The Alabama State FSA Office is located in Montgomery, Alabama. Forty-five FSA County Service Center offices are located throughout Alabama to serve the needs of local farmers and ranchers.
