WHAT: A Google+ Hangout on What the Farm Bill Means for New Farmers


WHEN and WHERE: Join us here at 3:00 p.m. EST

On Wednesday, May 28th at 3 p.m. EDT Agriculture Deputy Secretary Krysta Harden will host a Google+ Hangout to discuss what the Farm Bill means for new farmers.

The Agricultural Act of 2014 is an important piece of legislation that provides authorization for services and programs that impact every American and millions of people around the world. It also creates new opportunities for new farmers and ranchers to participate in USDA programs and makes key investments in the future of farming and ranching.

Some of the questions we will discuss are:

  • How does the Farm Bill impact me as a new farmer or rancher?
  • Who is the best point of contact as I figure out what’s best for me and my operation?

To learn about some of the key changes in the Farm Bill made for new farmers and ranchers, please visit the Agricultural Act of 2014:Highlights and Implications page.
