Dear Farm Friends,
Thank you for taking the time to participate in our Fruit Marketing Research, and helping provide valuable feedback as we seek to expand the markets, products, and palettes for unique small fruits in the Midwest. We hope you will help us learn more about your preferences and needs as it relates to eating different fruits. The fruits we are focusing on include honeyberry, red and black currant, elderberry, and honeyberry. These fruits are grower friendly, high-yielding and exceptionally nutritious. Growing these fruits adds to the diversity of our farms, and improves our farm ecology.
This survey should take you ~10 - 15 minutes to complete. Thanks again for your time and helping grow and support small-scale, sustainable agriculture. We look forward to hearing from and being of service to you.
Support for our research comes from the North Central Sustainable Agriculture Research and Education Farmer-Rancher Grant Program. Results will be shared in a final report to the NC SARE program. We will use the information from this survey to develop the best ways to market and process a diverse array of fruits for our farms. Growing these fruits expands the biodiversity of our farms and helps farmers manage risk through diversity of crops.
