Help New Farmers by Taking this Quick Survey
Adjust 2015 is an initiative to gather and share information that will help new farmers learn to address challenges in farming by adjusting their farm plans to be more resilient to difficulties.
Through surveys and interviews, Adjust 2015 will summarize the experiences of farmers who have had less than desired success, or who have had to make changes to their operations and plans in order to survive. This information will be incorporated into educational materials called New Farm Reality Check that will be shared throughout the region.
If you are a new farmer, or once were a new farmer, and are willing to take a longer survey or be interviewed, please take this pre-screening survey From this survey, we will select a subset of people to take a longer survey that takes roughly one hour, and for which we provide a $40 stipend.
This is an initiative of the Sustainable Farming Association, in collaboration with Renewing the Countryside and the University of Minnesota, with support from North Central SARE.
