"Value-added" is a term that includes a wide range of farmers who use specific production, marketing, or processing practices to add value to their farm products. In 2004, PATS sent out over 1,000 surveys to a very diverse group of value-added farmers to identify and describe farmers engaged in value-added agriculture in Wisconsin. The survey asked about their methods of production and marketing, gauged the importance of the agricultural policy environmental and information resources, inquired about future farming plans, and gathered basic information about farm enterprise and household characteristics.
