A new research study entitled The Relationship between Handlers and Farmers in the Organic Sector, supported by Professor Carolyn Dimitri of New York University, seeks input from certified organic handlers nationwide. This study has several intended benefits for the organic sector, including the identification of: (1) the technical and economic assistance companies provide to organic growers; (2) the extent to which organic handlers encourage domestic organic production; and (3) the opportunities to increase awareness of how the private sector supports organic farming. The survey takes approximately 10-15 minutes to complete. It includes questions about the handling facility and the facility’s relationship with suppliers. Upon completion of the survey, respondents qualify to win one of six $25 Visa gift cards. Please include contact information at the end of the survey to enter the drawing. Take the survey.
