The mission of the Nevada Farm Service Agency is to provide excellent service to farmers and ranchers who rely upon USDA programs we administer. Strong farms and ranches play a key role in the economic survival and sustainability of Nevada's rural communities. We believe in the 'Ag Culture' of our rural communities and we are committed to the success of their operations and the economic security of their families. I want everybody to know about the great Ag products we raise in Nevada.
Like the hard-working farmers and ranchers that we serve, our staff works diligently to make all of our efforts succeed. Our county staff remains as the primary contact for program participation and implementation. Our grassroots approach to solving Ag issues through county committees ensures that farm and ranch voices will be heard and it continues a long standing and cherished American tradition.
I am a product of the American family farm and I am very proud of it. I don't believe I could have lived a better life than the one I lived on the family farm. I am committed to keeping the Farm Service Agency as a cornerstone for the preservation and promotion of agriculture in Nevada. I will work hard to maintain the FSA as a responsible steward of tax payer dollars that provide our agricultural commodity, conservation, disaster assistance and loan programs for Nevada farm and ranch families.
I encourage you to use this website for more information. I also encourage you to call me or the staff at the State Office in Reno, NV, at (775) 857.8500 for help with any questions or for additional information.
