Extension Calling: advice for the farm, garden, and home

Dec 10, 2023

Funding a farm is no small feat and taking out a farm loan is a big deal. Sometimes collateral needs are overbearing, and interest rates are unfairly burdensome. If you applied for a farm loan prior to 2021 you may be eligible for funding now. Jacqueline Keene joins us from Windsor Group LLC to discuss a new federal program to help. We also discuss several amazing opportunities for farm funding through the Climate Smart Commodities program. Lisa Jones and Brian Wickline from WVU Extension join us to talk about one example, the year GRazing for Appalachian SuStainability (GRASS) grant project.

If you would like more information on the USDA Discrimination Financial Assistance Program program, please visit the National DFAP website at or by calling 1-800-721-0970. You can also reach out to Jacqueline Keene at
