The National Young Farmers Coalition (NYFC) is joining other agricultural justice organizations in launching the most inclusive survey of young farmers to date. The 2022 National Young Farmer Survey will gather the data needed to inform advocacy for equity, farmland justice, and climate action in the 2023 Farm Bill. The NYFC has a goal to bring together the voices of 10,000 working farmers, farmworkers, and former farmers to gather the data we need to power our advocacy for a brighter future for young farmers. NC FarmLink will be working with the NYFC to obtain survey results as they relate to North Carolina.

Every five years,  young farmers are surveyed across the country to present an up-to-date picture of the challenges and promises of the next generation in agriculture. Recommendations from our 2011 and 2017 surveys have been included in the 2014 and 2018 Farm Bills, including a permanent USDA microloan program designed for young farmers, historic funding for beginning farmer training, and outreach to socially disadvantaged farmers, beginning farmer and rancher coordinators in every state, and an increased loan limit for USDA’s farm ownership loan.

The NYFC is offering giveaway and discount codes to survey respondents who provide their contact information when completing the survey. For U.S. residents only. Items include a Farmall Cub, Carhartt 25% Off Discount Code + $500 Gift Certificate Giveaway, 15% Off Muck Boots Discount Code, $500 Johnny’s Selected Seeds Gift Certificate Raffle, and Patagonia Coat & Jacket Raffle,
