A Message from the State Executive Director

Welcome to the USDA Farm Service Agency. It is an honor and a privilege to continue to serve as your State Executive Director. At FSA, our dedicated team of professionals strives to manage and deliver programs in commodity, conservation, disaster assistance, and farm loans that improve the economic viability of agriculture in our Commonwealth.

Our primary mission is to assist Kentucky’s farmers and ranchers in securing the greatest possible benefit from programs administered by FSA. Whether it is a farm loan, price support, disaster relief, or conservation, we are here to help provide the best available resources to our agricultural producers. In Kentucky, and across the nation, our farmers provide our food and fiber cheaper, safer, and more efficiently than any other country in the world. That is why we stand ready to serve the needs of our local farm community.

We have 64 FSA Service Centers located throughout the Commonwealth. We encourage you to visit your local office to find out more about our programs and how we can assist you.
