Your first step to the beginning farmer/rancher program is to go to the FSA web site and click on your State, here>>>
Next find what your State offers and see if you qualify.
Then call your local bank and ask if you can talk to a loan officer about the beginning farmers program.
Take notes, ask questions. The bank employer will tell you what needs to be done, who you need to further contact and other info.
Next step, land hunting.
We found five to go look at.
(For those of you that are cash and carry, contact your local hometown bank. They will be more willing to work with you than the large national banks)
