The Piedmont Environmental Council is looking for individuals who raise or sell beef in Charlottesville, Albemarle, Nelson, Fluvanna, Louisa, Greene, Orange, Madison, Culpeper, Fauquier, Rappahannock and Loudoun County to take their short survey.
PEC is working with Health Care Without Harm (HCWH), a regional non-profit that encourages large institutions like hospitals and universities to purchase locally-raised beef. The purpose of our study is to better understand beef production in the Piedmont and producers’ interest in connecting with a consistent wholesale market. To complement PEC’s supply study, HCWH is doing a market demand study focused on hospitals and universities in our region. In the long-run, your responses could directly benefit your farm as well as the overall the economic viability of the beef production throughout the Piedmont region.
In order to gather information about the beef economy in the Piedmont, PEC has put together a short survey. If you raise or sell beef, please consider taking 10 minutes to take our survey!
