Fulton County Farm Service Agency -

The Farm Service Agency (FSA) administers farm commodities, crop insurance, and conservation programs for farmers.  It also makes farm loans through a network of state and county offices.  FSA programs are primarily directed at agricultural producers or, in the case of loans, at those with farming experience.  The majority of FSA employees work with producing farms that keep a crop history by making an annual report of planted acres to the FSA county office.  The Fulton County Farm Service Agency is managed by Jeff Smith. The local FSA administers many agricultural programs that are beneficial to Fulton County farmers and farm land.   Pictured left to right: Janelle Koch, Jeff Smith, and Jessica Kantzer.  The Fulton County FSA office is located at 1252 East 100 South, Rochester, IN 46975.
