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.
