The State of Hawaii has set goals to double local food production by 2020 and 2030.

The purpose of this survey is to understand the barriers and needs of farmers related to increasing food production in Hawaii. Survey responses will help define the kinds of support, extension, training, research, and public policy that may best meet the needs of growers across the state.

We are seeking responses from all operations engaged in agricultural or aquacultural production beyond the home scale. The survey should take approximately 5 minutes to complete.

A brief summary of the study results will be posted to this website in late Summer 2018. Survey participants may also choose to have a copy of the results sent by email.

Thank you very much for your time and participation!
