Producer Needs Survey

Appalachian Resource Conservation and Development Council and Appalachian Sustainable Development are partnering to better serve buyers and producers in the region.  Deepening this partnership has been made possible by a Local Food Promotion Program Grant from the USDA. 

In order for us to serve you better, we’d like to ask a few questions so we can be headed in the direction that best meets people’s needs.
