USDA Whole Farm Revenue Protection


Thursday, April 13, 2017 10:00 AM - 12:00 PM

Finally, a USDA insurance Program for the Rest of Us:
Whole Farm Revenue Protection

You know that farming is uncertain and that a wide range of problems, large and small, can occur that could reduce your expected farm incomenext year. Risk in farming cannot be eliminated. But there are proven ways to manage risk. How do you currently manage your farming risks? A new federal insurance program, Whole Farm Revenue Protection (WFRP), now guarantees up to 85% of your expected farm income, expanding on existing Federal Crop Insurance which insures a single commodity.

It is available today in every county for established and beginning small farmers, including those who direct market part or all of their production. Kent Fleming, from the OSU Applied Econ department, and George Harris from Northwest Farm Credit Services in Salem, will be here at SOREC to present a workshop on the program at 10:00 am on April 13th, 2017.
