Dowson Farms Settles Federal Complaint Over Subsidy Fraud Claims


The owners of a family farm operation in Divernon will pay more than five-million dollars to settle a federal complaint that they fraudulently claimed multiple farm subsidies.

 

The U.S. Attorney’s Office had charged Dowson Farms with creating phony entities in order to allow them to collect more subsidy dollars.

 

The settlement does not include an admission of wrongdoing, but does end the government’s case over incidents from 2002 to 2008.
