Value-added agriculture has grown tremendously in the public eye during the last decade as various food movements have raised awareness and more consumers have requested locally grown products. An increase in the number of farmers’ markets and CSAs has created a direct link from producers to consumers. Despite the growth in demand for these products, relatively little is known about the scope and diversity of the farmers producing value-added products in Wisconsin. This analysis represents a first look at the data from the Program on Agricultural Technology Studies (PATS) survey of 1,500 value-added farmers in Wisconsin.
