Agroforestry, Forest Farming, Non-Timber Forest Products (NTFPs)

Are you a forest farmer, or interested to learn more about production and markets? Take the survey!

The Appalachian Regional Commission recently sponsored a project through its Appalachian Regional Initiatives for Stronger Economies (ARISE) program focused on improving services and infrastructure for forest farmers. This short survey will help organizations learn about your needs and interests. Your responses will be kept confidential and used only for general reporting purposes. 


OAK and Grow Appalachia, along with nine other partners are collaborating on this project led by Virginia Tech to help jumpstart a plan to accelerate Appalachia’s forest farming industry and grow the market for non-timber forest products in Central Appalachia. This includes medicinal plants, edible products such as mushrooms and honey, ornamental products like garlands and burl, and landscape products. Are you growing, managing or harvesting these crops and have insights to share about what the industry needs in Kentucky? Interested to learn more about the opportunities and don’t know where to start? Tell us more - Take the Survey!
