appointment. Visitors will be prescreened concerning health concerns and
recent travel, and will be required to wear a mask and
adhere to social distancing guidelines.

Regardless of Service Center's Operating Status

Pandemic Assistance for Producers

USDA is committed to delivering financial assistance to farmers, ranchers, and agricultural producers who have been impacted by COVID-19 market disruptions through our new initiative – USDA Pandemic Assistance for Producers. Stay updated on announcements under the USDA Pandemic Assistance to Producers initiative at farmers.gov.


FSA Provides Receipt for USDA Services

FSA provides a receipt to customers who request or receive assistance or information concerning any FSA program. The receipt should be issued regardless if the request comes via an office visit, email, fax, or letter.

The 2014 Farm Bill requires a customer receipt to be issued for any agricultural program assistance requested from FSA, the Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) and Rural Development (RD). Receipts include the date, summary of the visit and any agricultural information, program and/or loan assistance provided to an individual or entity. 


USDA Expands Farmers.gov to Include Farm Records
  Access your land information in real time

Producers with farmers.gov accounts can now access farm records and maps online, the latest self-service feature added to the USDA website. 

You can quickly and easily access your land information in real time by desktop computer, tablet or phone. Capabilities include:

  • View, print and export detailed farm records such as cropland, base acres, yields, CRP acres, land ownership details, and much more;
  • View, print and export farm/tract maps that can be provided to lenders, chemical or fertilizer providers, and FSA for reporting acreage and crop insurance agents; and
  • Export common land unit (field) boundaries as ESRI shapefiles.

The ability to access these records on demand without a visit to the service center saves you time and money.

To access your information, you’ll will need a USDA eAuth account to login to farmers.gov. After obtaining an eAuth account, producers should visit farmers.gov and sign into the site’s authenticated portal via the Sign In/Sign Up link at the top right of the website. Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox or Microsoft Edge are the recommended browsers to access the feature. 

In addition to the self-service features available by logging into farmers.gov, the website also has ample information on USDA programs, including pandemic assistance, farm loans, disaster assistance, conservation programs and crop insurance. Recently, USDA updated the navigation and organization of the site as well as added some new webpages, including “Get Involved,” “Common Forms,” “Translations,” Farm Records Information Fact Sheet, and Farm Record Tutorials.
