The Texas Center for Local Food (TCLF) is collaborating with Coy Poitier, Chairman of the USDA Farm Service Agency’s (FSA) Dallas Urban County Committee, to explore a series of webinars about how Texas farmers and ranchers can benefit from participating in USDA programs. One of our goals is to highlight small, urban, and historically underserved producers who have successfully accessed technical or financial assistance from USDA.

Register today and please share with other farmers – experienced, new, and aspiring farmers are welcome!

FSA Farm Loan Opportunities – May 8, 2024 – 6:00 – 7:30 PM CST


The Farm Service Agency (FSA) is a USDA agency that provides farm loans, disaster assistance, and much more. FSA loan programs can be a powerful tool to help you start or grow your farm business, but can seem daunting.

Join us in this webinar to learn about FSA farm loan opportunities with a particular focus on Farm Ownership, Farm Operating, and Microloan programs. You’ll hear from an FSA representative and three Texas farmers/ranchers on their experience working with FSA farm loans.

Bring your questions!

P.S. You need a farm number to access FSA loans. Check out the recording from our first USDA program webinar to learn more:
