The Center for Rural Affairs’ Sustainable Options Hotline is now available to help farmers and ranchers learn how to access farm bill programs for their operations. For those looking to get a start in agriculture, the hotline is a great source of information.

You can find out about the Conservation Stewardship Program, the Environmental Quality Incentives Organic Transition Provision, the Value Added Producer Grants Program, as well as a host of beginning farmer and rancher programs and incentives.

The hotline is also seeking producer’s input from their experience in signing up for these programs. That helps ensure they are implemented on the ground as intended.

Contact the Center for Rural Affair's Sustanable Options Hotline online or call Traci Bruckner at 402-687-2100.
