Survey: Farmer/Rancher Landowners and Farm Seekers
If you are a farm or ranch owner, or are seeking a farm or ranch, read on!  KRC is participating in a study of farm transition programs across 12 Midwest states. Part of this study is to learn how farm/ranch owners are thinking about future opportunities for their land, and how that compares to people who are looking for a farm or ranch opportunity of their own. The research study is specifically looking at how programs helping people transition their farms to a new generation of farmer/rancher owners can be improved and to help places like Kansas, where such help is limited, develop a program. This survey targets owners and seekers for their particular perspectives.
All responses will be confidential and anonymous. After collecting responses, the research team will analyze data and report patterns and findings back to you via KRC communications and at KRC's fall conference. 
Who should participate? 
Anyone on KRC's general mailing list who farms or ranches or is seeking to farm or ranch.  If you own a farm or ranch and are thinking about how you plan to pass it on or if you have no plans, or if you have been looking for a farm or ranch opportunity, you should fill out this survey. The survey's first question is whether or not you are currently  farmer/rancher landowner or a seeker. Then it will guide you through a short series of questions.

Please return the survey as soon as possible; it will only take a few minutes.
What's the benefit to me?
Kansas has never had a formal land link type of program to bring farmers/ranchers/seekers together.  We hope to better understand what kind of a program would be the most help to Kansans seeking to farm and seeking to transition their existing farms and ranches to a new generation or beginning farmers-- especially those without family ties to land and farming.
