Amagansett Food Institute (AFI) is focused on supporting, promoting, and advocating for the farmers, vintners, fishermen, and other food producers and providers on the East End of Long Island.
AFI is conducting a study to explore the feasibility of developing a food hub on the East End that would help North and South Fork growers connect with more buyers and expand their wholesale business, with the goal of increasing farm revenue for local producers, and expanding availability of local farm products for buyers in the metro New York area.
A new food hub on the East End would focus on vegetables, fruits, meat, dairy, and/or grains.
Your survey input is critical to (1) understanding current and potential production of farm products on the East End, and (2) identifying opportunities for the development of strategies and infrastructure that will better connect you to local wholesale channels.
This survey is intended to assess a broad range of products. Please skip any questions that are not relevant to you based on the particular set of products you produce.
This is only a survey and your responses are not binding in any way. All individual survey responses will be kept strictly confidential and responses will be reported in summary form, only for the purposes of this study. If you have any questions, please contact Jessica Engle at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The survey will take approximately 15-20 minutes to complete and you can skip any optional questions if needed. Thank you for your participation. Please forward the survey link to other producers who may be interested!
