Guiding Principles for Farmer-Centered Design

Farmers.gov doesn’t deliver every agricultural resource, tool or story for farmers, ranchers and foresters – and it doesn’t pretend to. Instead, we’re talking to our customers and field employees who serve those customers, often farmers and ranchers themselves. We’re building farmers.gov around their needs and ideas through a streamlined, farmer-centered approach – bringing the most usable information together in a new way by:
Designing for farmer needs first, with an emphasis on local
Representing the full breadth of our customer base, from traditional producer to specialty farmers
Bringing the most relevant resources, programs and tools together in one place
Speaking with clear and plain language (leaving out government jargon and acronyms)
Using clear visual design, sensible navigation and understandable processes to help people reach their goals every time
Creating a mobile-first platform to reach customers where they live and work
Measuring what matters and using data to drive decisions
Continuously connecting with customers creating opportunities for feedback and improvement
