Trump Administration Appoints Jeffrey Holmes to Serve as State Executive Director for USDA's Farm Service Agency in New Hampshire

Concord, N.H. -- Dec. 08, 2017- The Trump Administration recently appointed Jeffrey Holmes as the new State Executive Director (SED) for the USDA New Hampshire Farm Service Agency (FSA). Holmes joined the New Hampshire FSA team on Monday, Nov. 27.

Holmes earned a bachelor’s degree in animal science from Cornell University and is the co-owner of a dairy farm. He has served as town moderator for Langdon, New Hampshire. Holmes has served in various leadership positions in the New Hampshire Farm Bureau, including state president, state treasurer and Young Farmer chairman. He is the past recipient of the New Hampshire Department of Agriculture Farm of Distinction Award and the New Hampshire Farm Bureau President’s Award. Holmes resides in Langdon.

The Farm Service Agency serves farmers, ranchers and agricultural partners through the delivery of effective, efficient agricultural programs. The agency offers farmers a strong safety net through the administration of farm commodity and disaster programs. FSA continues to conserve natural resources and also provides credit to agricultural producers who are unable to receive private, commercial credit, including special emphasis on beginning, underserved and women farmers and ranchers.

Under the direction of Secretary Sonny Perdue, the USDA will always be facts-based and data-driven, with a decision-making mindset that is customer-focused. Secretary Perdue leads the USDA with four guiding principles: to maximize the ability of American agriculture to create jobs, sell foods and fiber, and feed and clothe the world; to prioritize customer service for the taxpayers; to ensure that our food supply is safe and secure; and to maintain good stewardship of the natural resources that provide us with our miraculous bounty. And understanding that we live in a global economy where trade is of top importance, Secretary Perdue has pledged to be an unapologetic advocate for American agriculture.

USDA is an equal opportunity provider, employer and lender.
