I live with my family and raise fruits and vegetables in Oronoco, Minn. As a beginning farmer, I understand the need for access to credit and think that Farm Service Agency loans are critical to the farm economy, as they allow loans to be given to smaller or beginning farmer when banks don't want to lend to them. As a small farmer, I also see the need for these loans to have limits. Otherwise, banks would likely lend the entirety of the set pool of money to the largest farms over operations managed by small and beginning farmers like myself.
