USDA Risk Management Agency Listening Session – Feasibility of Insuring Local Food Production (Producers)

September 1, 2020 @ 8:00 am

Overview

As part of the 2018 Farm Bill, Congress required USDA Risk Management Agency (RMA) to solicit feedback about improved crop insurance coverage options for farmers and ranchers selling through local food markets. This includes discussing how existing crop insurance programs can be improved, as well as exploring the possibility of a new crop insurance program. 

The Northeast Region 2 (CT, DE, ME, MD, MA, NH, NJ, NY, PA, RI, VT) session for Producers will take place over Zoom on September 1, 2020 at 12pm ET.
