Minnesota is a major player among the States in the agriculture industry. We rank high in the production of corn, soybeans, and sugar beets, as well as many other livestock and grain commodities. The Minnesota Farm Service Agency’s mission is to support this key industry in our state through the efficient and effective delivery of agricultural programs for all farmers, ranchers and agricultural partners.
FSA has programs covering a range of areas from land conservation to disaster assistance and farm loans. We have staff located in over 70 Service Centers statewide available to answer any questions you might have on our various agricultural programs.
If you have the time, feel free to browse through our website and see what FSA has to offer. To find out if FSA has programs or services that might benefit you, please visit our Programs
page. If you would like to contact your local Service Center, please visit our County Offices
page and select your county.
We hope you enjoy your visit!
