“It’s time to stand up and be counted.”

Texas Small Farmers and Ranchers (TSFR-CBO) is a Community Based Organization established to reach the goals of strengthening USDA outreach efforts to limited resource, traditionally underserved, and underrepresented farmer and rancher customers to ensure USDA and coordinate program delivery outreach efforts in counties throughout Texas. This CBO is actively accelerating assistance to minorities, females, limited resource producers, veteran, beginning farmers, and ranchers by providing outreach assistance in receiving information, technical and program assistance from USDA, state and county agencies as well as various Texas universities.
