About Pennsylvania FSA

Welcome to the Pennsylvania Farm Service Agency's home on the web. With over 7.8 million acres of farmland, 58,000 farms, and $1.9 billion in agriculture exports annually, Pennsylvania has a thriving and vibrant 'ag' industry. FSA County Offices located throughout the Commonwealth deliver a variety of congressionally authorized credit and commodity programs to all of Pennsylvania's farmers and producers. For fiscal year 2013, the Pennsylvania FSA provided over $148 million in farm assistance program and loan payments. Through the administration of these programs FSA works to increase economic opportunity and improve the quality of life for rural Americans. See FSA At Work Across Pennsylvania.

 
Pennsylvania's State Office is located in Harrisburg while our 38 County Offices serve the needs of local farmers and ranchers. Our staff work diligently in support of the FSA mission: equitably serving all farmers, ranchers and producers, and agricultural partners through the delivery of effective, efficient agricultural programs for all Americans. Please visit our website periodically to obtain the most up-to-date agriculture information affecting you in Pennsylvania.
