Local farmers hit by freeze could get FSA loans

Canandaigua, N.Y. - Family farmers whose crops were damaged due to the freeze over this past winter could be eligible for Farm Service Agency (FSA) disaster emergency loan assistance.

Seven counties in Western New York have been declared eligible for FSA assistance.

The counties include: Ontario, Seneca, Wayne, Yates, Cayuga, Livingston and Monroe Counties.

Family farmers must prove they have suffered a loss of at least 30 percent of their production due to the freeze with documented records.

Proceeds from crop insurance and any FSA programs are taken into account.

Farmers may be eligible for production loss loans of up to 100 percent of their actual losses, or the operating loan amount needed to continue in business, or a maximum principal balance outstanding of $500,000, whichever is less.
