On Tuesday, September 9th, Agriculture Deputy Secretary Krysta Harden hosted a Google+ Hangout to discuss what the Farm Bill means for new farmers.
Some of the questions of this discussion were:
• What tools does USDA offer new and beginning farmers?
• Are there new programs in the Farm Bill that I should be seeking information on?
• How do I know which program is right for me?
