National Young Farmers Survey

National Young Farmers Coalition issues report on survey results; calls on lawmakers, businesses, and consumers to promote the “Young Farmer Agenda” as Congress writes a new farm bill.

According to the 2017 National Young Farmer Survey, America’s new generation of young farmers expect to overcome major barriers to their success in agriculture, including access to land, affordable health care, and mounting student loan debt; but success will require deliberate policy change at all levels of government. The survey was conducted by the National Young Farmers Coalition (NYFC) in partnership with Dr. Kathleen Merrigan, Executive Director of Sustainability at George Washington University and former U.S. Deputy Secretary of Agriculture.
