Are you new to farming or ranching? We can help you get started or grow your farming operation through a variety of programs and services.
While many of our programs support all farmers, regardless of how long they have been farming, we also offer special provisions within our cost share programs just for beginning farmers and ranchers. Specifically, anyone who has operated a farm or ranch for less than ten years.
In addition to beginning farmers, the Agriculture Improvement Act of 2018 (2018 Farm Bill) includes provisions that address the unique circumstances and concerns of socially disadvantaged, beginning, limited resource, and veteran farmers and ranchers (“historically underserved producers”).
Contact the Montgomery County District office to start farm planning, apply for cost share assistance on conservation smart practices, or some great technical advice!
