There are still some surveys running that we’re hoping to get more responses on. Please take the time to fill out the surveys.
Product Preference Program
In 2015 Representative Tarr requested an audit to be done on Alaska’s Agriculture Product Preference Program.
The Division of Agriculture and Alaska Farm Bureau are partnering to give input from agricultural stakeholders regarding next steps.
One of the options being discussed is separating out items that Alaskan farmers can produce in large enough quantities. This survey is to gather information on what products we have, what quantity and what time of year they are available.
With this information, the state can work towards ways to incorporate more local products in their purchases.
You can find the survey at the link below.
