Farm Credit East is conducting a brief survey to learn more about Northeast producers’ 2014 results and expectations for the year ahead. Anyone engaged in the business of agriculture, commercial fishing or forest products within the states of Connecticut, Maine, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York or Rhode Island is invited to participate. Survey participants will be entered into a drawing to win one of four $250 Visa gift cards.

The survey will not take more than 15 minutes to complete. Responses are mostly multiple choice – no long essay answers required. Responses will be kept confidential and be used only for statistical purposes.

This year’s survey is being conducted in cooperation with the New York Farm Viability Institute (NYFVI), which supports applied research, agricultural economic development and educational programming. Farm Credit East and NYFVI will work together to review results and release the findings. At the completion of the survey, statistical results will be compiled and made available on FarmCreditEast.com and nyfvi.org.
