Recently the National Young Farmers Coalition asked HMI to be a project partner on their 2017 National Young Farmer Survey that happens every five years and get the word out about this important survey. The data from this survey helps inform their work on the 2018 Farm Bill. It is critical that all young farmers take this survey to better inform farm policy.
Help us tell Congress that #FarmersCount by taking the National Young Farmer Survey:
Here are a few things you should know about the survey:
