Welcome to Indiana
Indiana FSA strives to provide quality services to all Indiana farmers through various commodity, conservation, credit and disaster programs. These programs not only provide a safety net to agriculture producers, but also provide stability to rural communities and the Hoosier economy as a whole.
Indiana FSA has a strong tradition of providing customer-based service to Indiana producers through its professional and dedicated staff. The state office is located on the northwest side of Indianapolis, while our 75 County Offices are positioned throughout the state to serve the needs of local farmers.
Indiana's diverse agricultural bounty feeds the entire world and I appreciate the work Indiana and American farmers do to feed a hungry nation and world. I encourage you to contact me at FSA's Indiana State Office with any questions you may have about our programs or operations.
Proudly Serving You and Indiana Agriculture,
Julia A. Wickard
