Survey on winter growing seeks input from vegetable farmers

Are you growing or storing crops for sale during the winter months?  Are you interested in expanding your farm’s winter harvest?

Click here to take the online survey, and get connected with a network of winter growers and resources for year-round farming! This survey will inform a new project to help farmers expand their winter crop production, and improve crop storage structures on New England farms. 

Northeast SARE has provided funding for a 3-year Research & Education project to expand winter harvest and sales for New England vegetable crops. Partners include University of Massachusetts, University of New Hampshire, Community Involved in Sustaining Agriculture (CISA) and Seacoast Eat Local. We are currently interviewing growers, setting up research trials, organizing winter markets, and planning educational workshops and meetings for farmers. Please complete our survey (link: http://www.surveymonkey.com/s/2WYDLPS) and tell us about what you’re doing on your farm, and what issues are important to you.

Stay tuned for details about upcoming workshops and events!
