Welcome to the Minnesota Farm Service Agency

We are here to serve you!

The Farm Service Agency (FSA) implements agriculture policy, administers credit and loan programs, and manages conservation, commodity, disaster and farm marketing programs.

Through our network of county FSA offices and dedicated personnel, we are proud to offer a variety of programs to assist you. You can find your local county office at the USDA service center locator.

Service Center staff continue to work with agricultural producers via phone, email, and other digital tools. Because of the pandemic, some USDA Service Centers are open to limited visitors. Contact your Service Center to set up an in-person or phone appointment. Additionally, more information related to USDA’s response and relief for producers can be found at farmers.gov/coronavirus.

Please take a moment to review the information and programs outlined on this website, or visit farmers.gov for a more comprehensive listing of our programs.


Sincerely,

Whitney Place, State Executive Director
