New England Grape Growers:
The USDA National Agricultural Statistics Service will be completing its first annual survey of grape production in New England. This data is critical for developing a clear understanding of the scope and scale of grape production in the region. Results are used by many service provider and industry organizations to develop support for the industry, and your support is much needed. All information is confidential and critically important to collect.
To date, decisions on support for technical personnel, marketing, and grant programs is based on best guesses for the size of the industry, and this effort will ensure that such data is collected on a consistent basis. No matter of the size of your vineyard, please help us to develop this information by participating.
