Does anyone know of any funding programs available to "new" new farmers/ranchers. Everything I've seen indicates at least 3 years of IRS sched. F. I was wondering if there was anything else or other avenues to explore as far as funding for land purchases and improvements.

3 years of Schedule F is not required for EQIP. Even in the case of FSA land purchase loans, the 3-year Schedule F "requirement" can be waived if you can document sufficient business experience (even from another career or degree) to manage a farm.
