What do you think about the Ag Census?

If you've read our April newsletter, you know that we are interested in the data from the recently published Agricultural Census. We'd love to hear your thoughts about the census. If you are a farmer, did you participate? Why or why not? What's your sense about the census finding 12,549 farmers who sold products through a CSA in '07? If you were in charge of the 2012 Census, what new questions would you include?

Tell us.  Post your comments below.

One of our LocalHarvest farmers wrote an extensive blog entry on the methodology used for the census. Check it out here.

I had no choice, they make you fill it out.
They call and call until you do. Then when you do fill it out turn it in a timely fashion, they still call you to make you answer the questions over the phone.
I find it another annoying goverment paperwork I need to fill out.

I would include a questioins about if the farmer supports the NAIS or not. This may raise awareness in farmers to check out this horrible program and rise up against it.
