BUTTE COUNTY, Calif. - We know that impacts from the partial government shutdown are hitting federal workers. but some farmers in the North State say they expect some challenges because of the shutdown as well.
Action News Now reached out to Andrew Sohnrey, from Sohnrey Family Foods in Oroville, who said that his crop insurance is subsidized including almonds and walnuts.
He said if crop insurance needs to be renewed, it can create some challenges.
"As a family and a farm we are not impacted per say, but it could definitely happen if it continues to go on for a long period of time or if we need to sign up for crop insurance," Sohnrey said. "It could very well affect us."
Sohnrey said the Farm Service Agency is closed, meaning local paperwork farmers may need cannot be filed at this time.
