Join us to hear about free programs, resources and services offered for producers. Learn how to write a successful grant proposal, identify what food safety certifications exist and what they mean for producers. Get to know what the 5 C's of credit are and how FSA uses them in our loan making decisions, gain knowledge on the NRCS EQIP ranking process and
much more.

Are you a new/beginning farmer or even a seasoned farmer that seems lost in the USDA process? Do you want to learn more about the eligibility requirements to participate in USDA programs? Are you unsure of all the agriculture resources that are available to you, including producer grant opportunities, financial assistance and loans? If you answered yes, to any of these questions, then this workshop will help you understand all the above and provide much
more. Farm Service Agency (FSA) and other USDA and government partners will be hosting a two-day workshop to demystify the process of working with government agencies and answer any questions you may have.

The workshop is free and open to all producers or potential producers.
