An official website of the United States government
The .gov means it’s official.
Federal government websites always use a .gov or .mil domain. Before sharing sensitive information online, make sure you’re on a .gov or .mil site by inspecting your browser’s address (or “location”) bar.
This site is also protected by an SSL (Secure Sockets Layer) certificate that’s been signed by the U.S. government. The https:// means all transmitted data is encrypted — in other words, any information or browsing history that you provide is transmitted securely.
The farmers.gov website serves up streamlined content – what producers need and nothing more – with clear instructions, in plain language and enhanced by useful multi-media and data-driven products. The farmers.gov website navigation strategically displays content by customer tasks or “what producers want to do” rather than by USDA agency or program.
