Welcome to the Arizona Farm Service Agency Home Page

Our primary mission is to help ensure the success of Arizona’s farmers and ranchers through various programs and technical assistance. The work that FSA continues to accomplish day to day is important not only to the agricultural producers around the State but also to the rural communities that depend on the agricultural industry.

The hard-working men and women of Arizona's county offices are at the forefront of our efforts and remain the primary contact for program participation. We encourage you to speak with the staff at your local FSA office on how we can be of service. Our website can help you learn more about FSA programs and services.
