Welcome to New Jersey FSA!

 

 
New Jersey, known as the Garden State, has a vast diversity of landscapes and is a unique combination of densely populated urban centers and open agricultural areas. For a small state, agriculture in New Jersey is quite significant with more than 100 crops being produced. Despite legislative and public pressures, high input costs, and the second highest per-acre market value of farmland in the nation, 16% of New Jersey land is dedicated to agriculture production and the ag industry contributes $987 million to the state’s economy.

 
The Garden State is 3rd in the nation for producing Cranberries, Peaches and Spinach; 4th in Bell Pepper production; 6th in Blueberries, Cucumbers, and Squash; and 7th in Tomatoes. Other major commodities are nursery, berries, equine and aquaculture.

 
The Farm Service Agency is a safety outlet for producers. It helps ensure:

 
  • The well-being of American Agriculture, the environment, and the American People though efficient and equitable administration of farm commodity programs;
  • Farm ownership, operating, and emergency loans;
  • Conservation and environmental programs;
  • Emergency and disaster assistance;
  • Domestic and international food assistance and international export credit programs.

 
Our Goals are to:

 
  • Stabilize Farm Income
  • Help Farmers Conserve Land and Water Resources
  • Provide Credit to New or Disadvantaged Farmers
  • Help Farm Operations Recover From the Effects of Disaster

 
County Committee Elections
The election of responsible agricultural producers to FSA county committees is important to ALL farmers and ranchers with large or small operations. It is crucial that every eligible producer take part in this election because county committees are a direct link between the farm community and the U.S. Department of Agriculture.

 
Committee members are a critical component of the day-to-day operations of FSA. They help deliver FSA farm programs at the local level. Farmers who serve on committees help decide the kind of programs their counties will offer. They work to make FSA agricultural programs serve the needs of local producers.
