|WELCOME TO THE FARM SERVICE AGENCY|
The Connecticut division of the Farm Service Agency (FSA) offers farmers a variety of assistance through farm programs, farm loans and ad hoc disaster programs. Our employees work with farmers daily to identify assistance we can provide for their specific operations. We've been serving farmers since 1935 and we're always looking for opportunities to strengthen Connecticut's agricultural community.
To learn about what we can do for you, contact your local county office - contact information can be found through the USDA service center locator.

Coronavirus and USDA Service Centers
USDA Service Centers in Connecticut will continue to be open for business by phone appointment only and field work will continue with appropriate social distancing. While our program delivery staff will continue to come into the office, they will be working with our producers by phone, and using online tools whenever possible. All Service Center visitors wishing to conduct business with FSA are required to call their Service Center to schedule a phone appointment. In the event a Service Center is not currently available to serve customers on location, producers can receive assistance from the closest alternate Service Center by phone.
