USDA expands program

March 27, 2014

The United States Department of Agriculture has expanded its Farm Storage and Facility Loan Program, which provides low-interest financing to producers.

The enhanced program includes 22 new categories of eligible equipment for fruit and vegetable producers, and makes it easier for farmers and ranchers around the country to finance the equipment they need to grow and expand.

This is part of a broader effort to help small and mid-sized farmers and ranchers, as Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack announced earlier this month.
