To:

Hello Farm to School partners!  Please see the short note below regarding the upcoming 2017 Census of Agriculture.  We’d like to make sure that ALL farmers in Arkansas are counted so we have a better picture of what’s being grown in the state and what’s available to schools and other markets.  If you are a farmer, please be sure that you are on the mailing list.  If you know farmers, please share this with them!

Thanks and let’s be counted!!!


Be Counted in the 2017 Census of Agriculture

In just a few months, America’s farmers and ranchers will have the opportunity to make a positive impact on their operations and communities by taking part in the Census of Agriculture. Conducted every five years by the USDA’s National Agricultural Statistics Service (NASS), the census captures a complete count of all U.S. Farms and ranches and those who operate them. NASS is in the final stage for preparing the 2017 Census of Agriculture mailing list. If you are new to farming or didn’t receive a 2012 Census of Agriculture questionnaire there is still time to be counted by signing up at www.agcounts.usda.gov/cgi-bin/counts/.  Simply click on the ‘Make Sure You Are Counted’ button below and provide the requested information.
