Presenter: Kathleen Liang, University of Vermont
Moderator: Lisa Chase, University of Vermont Extension
Given the growing interest in understanding the relationship between food systems and small/medium-sized farming operations, this webinar will share results from surveys of farms in the New England region. Summarized results will include farm profiles, multifunctional activities (agritourism, direct sales, value added, and off farm income), financial outcomes, expectations, challenges, and entrepreneurial assessments.
This survey is the first segment of a study on multifunctional farms funded by the USDA AFRI Program (project # 2011-67023-30106). Collaborators include Drs. Mary Ahearn (USDA ERS), Stephan Goetz (Penn State University), and Jason Brown (USDA ERS).
