Indiana FSA Educates Community During Family Farm Day

Children learn about agriculture and during the Family Farm Day at FSA at the Henry County USDA Service Center in Indiana.

In an effort to capture families and young people’s attention and to encourage them to explore what programs are available from the USDA Farm Service Agency, the Henry County Indiana USDA Service Center held its second annual community outreach day last month. Family Farm Day at FSA provided program information to nearly 55 residents of all ages. Programs highlighted were the Non-Insured Crop Disaster Assistance Program (NAP), Milk Income Loss Contract Program Supplemental Revenue Assistance Program, Farm Safety, Farm Loan Program Youth Loans and Emergency Loans.  Families participated in multiple activities like pumpkin decorating, pedal tractor races and a scavenger hunt that introduced children to agricultural produce.  Participants also visited the NAP garden, learned about milk production and interacted with staff members on a four-wheel drive tractor.
