Your Business

Every agricultural operation is different — farm or ranch, rural or urban, small or big, and everywhere in between. That’s why USDA offers a wide variety of programs and services, as well as special provisions for certain operations and producers.

Conservation Easements

For private landowners, we also offer conservation easements that enable you to protect sensitive lands like wetlands, grasslands, and prime farmland.

Historically Underserved Farmers and Ranchers

USDA offers provisions for historically underserved producers, which includes:

  • Beginning farmers and ranchers;
  • Socially disadvantaged producers, including Black, American Indian/Alaska Native, Hispanic, Asian, and Hawaiian/Pacific Islander;
  • Low income, or limited resource, producers; and
  • Veterans.
