USDA’s Risk Management Agency (RMA) may have the coverage you need if you are running a smaller operation. The Whole-Farm Revenue Protection and Micro Farm Program are great risk management options for urban, organic and innovative producers.
Whole Farm Revenue Protection provides a risk management safety net for all commodities on the farm under one insurance policy. This allows diversified farms to insure all of their crops together, including specialty or organic commodities and those marketing to local, regional, specialty, and direct markets. Check out our Frequently Asked Questions on Whole-Farm Revenue Protection.
- Whole-Farm upcoming sales closing dates vary by county and are January 31, February 28, and March 15. To purchase before your sales closing date, speak to a crop insurance agent as soon as possible.
The Micro Farm Program gives smaller operations (up to $350,000 in approved revenue) a more streamlined way to insure all commodities under one policy. This is ideal for producers who participate in farmers markets and local food networks because post-production operations, such as canning, freezing, and processing can be used to calculate your farm’s insurance guarantee.
