Practical Guide to USDA Programs and Loans

Join us for an informative overview of the various programs that the USDA has to offer.  In the morning staff from different agencies will give an overview of their programs that can benefit new farmers.  Afterwards Rodney Brooks, USDA Beginning Farmer Regional Coordinator, will facilitate a panel of farmers who successfully applied for these programs to share their first-hand experiences.  After lunch there will be ample opportunity to ask questions and delve deeper in topics of interest.
