USDA Introduces Micro Farm Insurance for Farms that Sell Locally

USDA is rolling out a new insurance option specifically for agricultural producers with small farms who sell locally. The new Micro Farm policy simplifies recordkeeping and covers post-production costs like washing and value-added products. It is offered through Whole-Farm Revenue Protection and will be available beginning with the 2022 crop year. The Micro Farm policy is available to producers who have a farm operation that earns an average allowable revenue of $100,000 or less.
