Summer is here! Ready to get back on the road?
We’re kicking off the 2019 #OurFarmers Roadtrip! Put down the windows, turn up the radio, and join us in meeting just a few of the farmers and ranchers growing food, fuel, and fiber across the United States.
Just like last year’s Natural Resources Conservation Service #ConservationRoadtrip, we’re going to visit some exceptional farmers and ranchers who are working with USDA to strengthen and grow their operations. As a bonus, the Farm Service Agency and Risk Management Agency are joining the fun for 2019.
#OurFarmers are using USDA programs and services – such as farm loans, conservation programs, and crop insurance – to be and stay successful. These producers are going to show us how it’s done. Let's get rolling!
