“Working on behalf of the President, Vice President and Secretary Perdue to put North Carolina’s farm producers in a position of success will be the urgent focus of my work at USDA,” said Woodhouse, a North Carolina native. “Service is, indeed, the critical function of Farm Service Agency.”
FSA state executive directors help implement USDA policies in planning, organizing and administering FSA programs in their respective states. They are also responsible for running the day-to-day activities of the state FSA office.
Prior to his appointment, Woodhouse served on a County Board of Elections, with the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development and on U.S. Senate staff. He is married to Michele, a medical consultant. Woodhouse previously served North Carolina agricultural producers as the state’s Communications Coordinator and Outreach Coordinator for USDA.
