I am a freelance journalist writing an article on the economics of running a small farm, and am distributing the following survey (https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/CHJ58CF) in order to collect important information from farmers like you. Please fill out the following survey and share it with other farmers you may know. While the article has yet to be placed, it will likely be in a national magazine such as The Nation or The Atlantic.
As far as my own background, I have written articles about labor and employment issues, as well as food related issues. I am interested in small farms and the economics behind them because little has been written about it. My hope is that small farmers from across the nation will fill out the survey so that we can have reliable data on the labor economics of small farming. All information will be confidential and will not be shared or sold to any other entity. I am also providing access to the results of the survey to all participants. You will find questions pertaining to this in the survey.
Thanks for your time and energies. Please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions.
