The National Agricultural Statistics Service recently mailed the 2014 Organic Survey to organic farmers across the country. The survey focuses exclusively on issues, trends, and concerns for organic farmers.
The survey is a follow-up to the 2012 Census of Agriculture. It is also a follow-up to the previous Organic Survey, completed in 2008.
The survey will provide highly important trend data on growth, trends, challenges, and opportunities for organic farmers. By looking at the new data as compared to the 2008 data, organic farmers, and those who have an interest (in any manner) in organic farming, will have more information at their fingertips about where organic farming is heading, the growing market, and emerging challenges and opportunities.
If you’ve already received your survey, you may complete it online.
If you are an organic producer, or transitioning to organic production, please take the time to complete the survey. In this case, more information allows for better production, marketing, and risk management for all organic producers!
