Marinette County Farm Service Agency Officially Closing


Brad Pfaff, State Executive Director for the Wisconsin State Farm Service Agency (FSA) today announced that as of August 3, 2012, the Marinette County FSA office will be officially closed. From this date forward, all FSA program services will be provided by the Oconto County FSA office unless a producer has elected to transfer his/her records to another county. The Oconto County FSA office is located at 111 Arbutus Avenue in Oconto and the phone number is (920) 834-2366.

On May 29, 2012, Wisconsin Farm Service Agency (FSA) received approval from Secretary of Agriculture Tom Vilsack to proceed with the implementation of county office consolidation plan, including the Marinette county office(s) in Wisconsin.

"Over the past three years, FSA has faced a variety of budget-related challenges," said Bruce Nelson, Administrator of the Farm Service Agency. "Through a targeted office consolidation effort that includes 125 offices nationwide, FSA is striving to balance significant budget cuts, staff reductions and increasing workloads while focusing the efforts of our staff on high-quality service. There are 2,119 offices remaining in the FSA network to do just that."

"Although we recognize that change is never easy, we strongly believe that taking this action now is critical to ensuring FSA can continue to serve its customers as it adjusts to budget constraints," said Nelson. "FSA can only achieve the high level of service expected through consolidation of our human, financial and technical resources."
