Young, Beginning, and Small Producers Program (YBS)

Young, beginning and small producers are vital to the economic health of agriculture and rural communities. Farm Credit offers several programs to help these producers get started and remain successful in their farming and ranching businesses.

The System's special YBS programs are designed for producers who meet at least one of the following criteria:

  • Young – 35 years of age or younger
  • Beginning – less than 10 years of agricultural experience
  • Small – farm production is less than $250,000 annually

Education and mentoring are vital elements of the YBS program and participants are encouraged to work closely with Farm Credit staff to build financial management skills as they develop their operations.

Contact your local Farm Credit representative today or visit the Field Guide to the New American Foodshed site, created by the Farm Credit Council in partnership with the USDA, for more information about YBS programs.
