Survey for Mid-Atlantic Fruit & Vegetable Farmers
Are you a fruit or vegetable farmer in the Mid-Atlantic region (PA, NJ, DE, MD, VA, WV, and DC)?
Have you participated in or considered participating in:
1) Farm to School sales or activities OR
2) Farmers’ Market Nutrition Incentive programs (like FMNP & SNAP matching programs)?
Megan Lehnerd, a PhD student at the Tufts University Friedman School of Nutrition, is conducting a study to learn more about why farmers choose to participate or not participate in these programs. The purpose of this research is to better understand how and why farmers choose to participate in these programs and the impacts and barriers Mid-Atlantic farmers experience in selling within these markets. The survey will take between 20 and 30 minutes to complete, and if you complete the survey, you can choose a $25 gift card to either Amazon or Johnny’s Selected Seeds.
