Donovan Todd III, State Executive Director
Maine State Farm Service Agency
Welcome to the Maine State USDA FSA Home Page. As State Executive Director (SED), I have made supporting our Maine farmers through our programs and loans a top priority. I have instructed FSA employees to remain focused on our mission of service to Maine farmers. Congress recently enacted a new Farm Bill which eliminated the Direct and Counter-Cyclical Program (DCP) and the Average Crop Revenue Election Program (ACRE) and replaced them with the Price Loss Coverage (PLC) and Agricultural Risk Coverage (ARC) programs.
I encourage you to search the numerous links we have on the site and revisit us from time to time as we implement the new Farm Bill and add new sources of information as it becomes available. Please feel free to contact my office if you have questions or suggestions.
Launching the Celebration – 30 Years of Conservation
2015 marks the 30th Anniversary of the Conservation Reserve program (CRP) and in recognition of this milestone; FSA has launched a commemorative website. The web address is www.fsa.usda.gov/CRPis30
. We hope you’ll visit the site often to take an interactive, cross-country tour and see the nationwide impact of the Conservation Reserve Program (CRP) unfold virtually over the next several months.
Small and midsize producers provide new opportunities for American agriculture across the country. This page provides small and midsize producers valuable resources and program information about access to capital, land management and conservation practices, managing risk, finding local markets, and other educational resources.
