Upcoming Events

Crop Insurance to Help Organic and Diversified Farmers Manage Risk Webinar

Wednesday, September 14, 12-1:30PM

Crop insurance programs are no longer out of reach for organic and diversified farms! The USDA has introduced Whole Farm Revenue Protection (WFRP) insurance and adjusted other crop insurance programs to better meet the needs of organic and other diversified farmers. The webinar will cover Whole Farm Revenue Protection (WFRP), Non-Insured Crop Disaster Assistance Program (NAP) and a number of other crop insurance programs that can help you protect your farm from unforeseen financial losses.

Presented by California Farmlink and hosted by CCOF. Support for this project is provided through a cooperative agreement with the USDA Risk Management Agency.
