Agricultural Commission

Survey Results

With help from FRCOG, the Agricultural Commissions of Colrain, Heath and Charlemont completed a tri-town survey to better understand local food needs for consumers and growers in each of the three towns. Working jointly on this initiative will hopefully afford access to grants and provide more regional options that might not be otherwise available to any one town. Please find a copy of the final results of this survey on this webpage.

Note that the deadline for completion of the survey was extended to March 2017. There was a 17% response rate in Colrain (over 250 respondents). A drawing from interested survey respondents from all three towns was held and a $100 basket of locally produced food products was awarded to a local resident, Erich Holan of Heath.
