Believe it or not, the census of Agriculture mailing is probably in your mailbox!
It’s the only source of uniform, comprehensive and impartial agricultural data for every county in the nation. The more responses we have, the more accurate and complete our data will be; we want all farms represented.
Data from the Census help:
· Shape programs and initiatives that benefit young and beginning farmers;
· Expand access to resources that help women, veteran and minority farmers;
· And help farmers diversify into new markets, including local and regional food systems, specialty crops and organic production.
If you have any questions about the Census of Agriculture or any NASS surveys and data, please call our office in Louisville, (800) 928-5277.
