New! Farm storage facility loans available

In preparation for new food safety regulations, the Farm Service Agency (FSA) recently announced improved financing options to help fruit and vegetable growers build or upgrade food handling facilities. Farm Storage Facility Loans can be used in conjunction with FSA Microloans to finance equipment and buildings for fruit and vegetable washing, packing, handling, and cold-storage.
