The Cornell Small Farms Program is seeking farmers who have grown and sold specialty mushrooms commercially during 2017 in the states of Maine, Vermont, New Hampshire, Connecticut, Rhode Island, Massachusetts, New York, New Jersey, Maryland, Delaware and Pennsylvania to respond to a survey about their harvest numbers, sales, and marketing strategies.
The goal in collecting this information on an annual basis is to keep a pulse on the state of specialty mushroom cultivation by small farms in the Northeast USA.
Answers to this survey will be kept confidential, and no individual responses will be shared publicly.
In addition to collecting sales and production data, we are also interested in capturing the research and education needs of the mushroom growing community. Please share your thoughts and ideas when prompted.
After compiling the results, the program will offer a summary of the data via a public webinar, which can be useful to a number of individuals and institutions for granting, market assessment, and other uses for a growing industry.
Any questions can be directed to Steve Gabriel at firstname.lastname@example.org.
