Advisory Direct Sales Producers

The Nova Scotia Department of Agriculture (NSDA) is launching a survey looking at the effects COVID-19 has had on direct sales patterns within the Agriculture Industry.  Primary producers and producers who value-add are being encouraged to participate in the survey if they direct sell to consumers.

For the NSDA survey, direct sales are defined as “Farm to customer through farm gate, farmers market, online ecommerce, community shared agriculture deliveries and sales through small or alternative retailers.”

If you direct sell to consumers and would like to take part in this confidential survey, please contact Elizabeth Morgan at elizabeth.morgan@novascotia.ca with your name, farm name, and the region your operation is situated. A department staff member will contact you about the survey this September.
