Part 1  Greater Franklin Food Council              Farmer Survey
Are you a farmer who produces FOOD? We want to hear from YOU!

Our mission: The mission of the Greater Franklin Food Council (GFFC) is to foster a healthy food system in greater Franklin County by bringing people together to ensure access to nutritious local food, support local farmers, and advocate for food related programs that strengthen local communities. The work is accomplished through the development of partnerships, outreach, and education.

This survey will help us set priorities moving forward so that we can be useful to Franklin County farmers.

We have a two part survey process to hear your farm successes, struggles, and opportunities.
1)    The first part (this one) of our survey project is to get some baseline data from you (2-5 minutes).
2)    The second part will be a follow up conversation to learn how GFFC can support you.

Please allow 15-50 minutes for Part 2, in person or by phone. We listen well and hope you'll talk our ears off!

From the survey, GFFC will develop clear priorities for how we can be useful to farming in greater Franklin County . We will share the results and hope to announce these priorities in the fall of 2022.
