New small scale and alternative farmers can sign up before June 30th to be counted in this year's Census of Agriculture. This is an important opportunity to be counted, which has the potential to help relevant funding and research become available in our area.
Every five years, America's farmers and ranchers have the opportunity to represent ourselves, our farms, and our communities by taking part in USDA's Census of Agriculture—and 2017 is a census year!
For farmers and ranchers, especially young and beginning farmers and ranchers, participation in the 2017 Ag Census is a critical opportunity to shape American agriculture for years to come. The Ag Census is the only source of uniform, comprehensive, and impartial agriculture data for every county in the nation. NYFC relies on this data to advocate for you and for policies, services, and programs that support young farmers!
Please sign up to take the 2017 Census of Agriculture. Make sure you're counted!
