More and more vegetables are being grown and sold during the winter in New England, and the addition of new crops and markets has happened rapidly. We’re trying to determine what the biggest issues are for growers with respect to production and marketing to guide our future research and programs. We also want to get an idea of the impact that the addition of winter sales has had on farms and farmers’ incomes overall.
If you market vegetables between December and April, please take our survey. Your answers will go a long way in determining what the state of winter growing is now, how it has changed over the last few years, and how our organizations can assist you in the future.
The survey should take about 10 minutes to complete.
Thank you for your help!
