2023 Northeast Pasture Survey

Thank you for taking the time to participate in the yearly New England Grazing Network survey. This survey is focused on understanding the regional needs of grazing-based livestock farming in the New England area. Your response will help our partner organizations better assess our ability to support grazing-focused stakeholders across the region and prioritize regenerative grazing outreach, education, and advocacy.

We would appreciate it if you could take a few moments to share your valuable insights with us.

The New England Grazing Network (NEGN) project was founded on the concept that the six New England states could be powerful change makers if aligned around common measurements and a shared vision. You can find a list of our current partners and more information about the project at www.negrazingnetwork.com/.

Please note that all data collected will be anonymous and aggregated. We value your privacy and ensure that your personal information remains confidential.

If you have any questions or concerns about the survey, please do not hesitate to contact our NEGN coordinator Alex Gulachenski (agulachenski@wolfesneck.org)

Thank you again for your time and contribution.
