USDA Program Spotlight: Whole Farm Revenue Protection

Athens Farmers Market Stand

Whole-Farm Revenue Protection (WFRP) is the premier crop insurance for small and diversified producers. The program provides a risk management safety net for all commodities on the farm under one insurance policy, and the plan is tailored for any farm with up to $8.5 million in insured revenue. This includes farms with specialty or organic commodities (both crops and livestock), or those marketing to local, regional, farm-identity preserved, specialty, or direct markets.

For more information contact Travis A. Roberts, USDA RMA Risk Management Specialist, Valdosta Regional Office:

RMA has also produced a Whole Farm Revenue Protection fact sheet summarizing the program.
