A Message from the State Executive Director

As a shining star of the Caribbean and known as "La Isla del Encanto", which means "The Island of Enchantment", Puerto Rico is composed of 110 miles long x 35 miles wide, is surrounded by mountains, rain forest, karst areas, arid desert regions, caves, rivers, beaches and oceans. With a warm and tropical climate we describe our agriculture in two systems: one of very small farms mainly producing subsistence commodities and another of large farms producing dairy milk, vegetables, and fruit products. We have approximately 13, 159 farms; most of them composed of 10 acres or less.

In Puerto Rico, the FSA delivers farm loans, farm programs, conservation incentives, price support and disaster assistance programs through nine County Service Centers . Our employees are proud in providing efficient and quality services through FSA available programs.

I invite you to contact us or visit our web page to learn about available services.

Our best wishes,

Juan M. Ortiz Serbiá

Damian Rivera Alfonzo, Chairperson
