ONLINE GROWER SURVEY ON WINTER HARVEST AND SALES:
New England Vegetable Growers Needs Assessment
Do you store vegetables for winter sales, or are you producing vegetables to harvest between December and April? Are you interested in expanding your farm’s winter harvest? We are seeking input and involvement from vegetable farmers on a project to help build the capacity for winter vegetable production in our region. Northeast SARE has provided funding for a 3-year Research & Education project to expand winter harvest and sales for New England vegetable crops. Partners on the project include University of Massachusetts, University of New Hampshire, Community Involved in Sustaining Agriculture, and Seacoast Eat Local.
We are in the first year of the project, and are seeking feedback from farmers on what winter growing and sales you are doing now, what you would like to do in the future, and what issues are most important to expand your production, storage or sales. It is a 5–10 minute survey. This short survey can be found at: http://www.surveymonkey.com/s/2WYDLPS
