American Farmland Trust and the Connecticut Department of Agriculture, with support from Very Alive, teamed up in April 2006 to survey owners of farms that were preserved through the Connecticut Farmland Preservation Program. A 79 question survey was mailed from the CT Department of Agriculture and included a cover letter from the Commissioner. Completed surveys were mailed to American Farmland Trust and were kept anonymous. Of 217 surveys mailed, 78 were returned, for a response rate of 36%.
