Local Food Distribution Survey

We are asking for your participation in a survey on local food distribution being conducted by the UNH Department of Natural Resources. We invite commercial fruit and vegetable farmers like you to express your needs, preferences, and willingness to pay for distribution services.

Your responses to this survey are very important and will help distributors, producer cooperatives, food hubs, and other organizations understand your distribution needs, and better evaluate potential approaches for addressing the regional needs of growers throughout New Hampshire.

This survey should take twenty-five minutes to complete. If you are 18 years or older, please click on the link below to go to the survey website (or copy and paste the survey link into your Internet browser) to begin to begin the survey.
