National Beginning Farmer Survey, Have You Participated?

February 28, 2011

Data on the challenges faced by today’s young and beginning farmers is hard to come by.  That’s why the National Young Farmers’ Coalition, in partnership with the Greenhorns and Beginningfarmers.org, is conducting a national survey to understand what’s working for beginning farmers, what’s not, and what policies they’d like to see in the next Farm Bill.  Survey data will be used in a report illustrating the needs of the next generation and the development of a beginning farmers’ policy platform.

The goal is 1,500 surveys—and the National Young Farmers’ Coalition needs your help to reach it:

If you’re a farmer, please take the survey now—and afterwards, please send it to five farmer friends.

If you’re an NSAC member group, please share this link with your local farmer community: http://www.surveymonkey.com/s/NYFC

Surveys responses are due by April 1, 2011.

Please direct any questions to Lindsey Lusher Shute, Lindsey@youngfarmers.org.
