N.C. Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services, OGS, Southwestern RC&D, and the Carolina Land & Lakes RC&D have teamed up to update and release an important survey for an even broader impact on farming in our region. They ask that you take these last moments of late winter to fill out their Farming in NC survey. Your feedback will lead directly to more programs and support that you need. Give the agriculture support professionals an idea of what you want and need and what you are currently doing, so we can tailor our services to you! See below for how the first survey in 2015 had a real and lasting impact.
Thank you for your time & honest response.
 
Background:
Organic Growers School (OGS) first conducted this survey in 2015. The data we received from farmers directly led to new training and support programs reaching farmers across WNC. The creation of OGS’s Farm Beginnings Farmer Training course, which has now trained and graduated 50+ beginning farmers, is a prime example. It also led to the creation of the Appalachian Farm School in Jackson County, and professional development grants for farm businesses through the NC Rural Center.
