Sign Up for USDA - Farm Service Agency Updates on Farm Bill Programs

Tolland, CT - February 13, 2014

USDA Connecticut Farm Service Agency (FSA) State Executive Director Bryan Hurlburt encourages farmers, agriculture stakeholders, land use professionals and locally elected and appointed zoning or agriculture commissioners to sign up for our free online news service, GovDelivery. 


"The Farm Service Agency has a number of different programs designed to assist producers that many people are not aware of.  By signing up for our free newsletter, we can get information in your Inbox with timely, relevant, and important information on our programs, sign ups, and deadlines," said Hurlburt.


GovDelivery is a more efficient, timely, and affordable option for receiving important USDA Farm Service Agency program information.  This service is the primary means FSA uses to distribute timely information on new farm bill programs.  FSA has moved from monthly mailed paper newsletters to email as a cost saving measure.


"There is a lot of interest in our programs, especially our loan and insurance programs, once people are aware that they exist.  It is important for producers to know about these programs, but it is equally important that our local zoning and land use professionals know about these tools that can assist a producer.  Many times, they receive the first phone call when there is a problem," said Hurlburt.


Through FSA's GovDelivery electronic news service, producers can establish subscriber preferences by choosing to receive federal farm program information by topic, by state and/or by county. Producers can select as many subscriber options as they want, which allow producers who farm in multiple counties or across state lines to receive updates from each county in which they operate or have an interest.


To begin using GovDelivery, subscribe online at 

or contact a local FSA office for subscription assistance.
