"I am conducting a single issue Listening Project with new farmers concerning their experiences, realities, and challenges as new farmers primarily in accessing land and capital. My intention is to derive this content ultimately as a contribution to a policy advocacy campaign working to promote resources and opportunities for new farmers(namely the Beginning Farmer and Rancher Opportunity Act within the 2012 Farm Bill). I am contacting you today to inform you of my work and in an effort to extend my network of contacts for new farmers. Could you share my project with new farmers within your program or provide me with contacts for new farmers(10 years experience or less)? Those interested in participating and sharing their story may contact me directly at KatieEndicott@gmail.com or at 267-625-9521. Many thanks for your interest and assistance! I look forward to hearing from you."
