Farmland Values Project
about the project

To learn about the values that people have for farmland in our study region, a survey of residents and visitors to Buncombe, Haywood, Henderson and Madison counties was conducted between September and December of 2007. The survey was mailed to a random sample of 800 residents in each county, and was also available at local festivals which attract residents and visitors alike. In addition, the survey was available to visitors who subscribe to the Asheville Convention and Visitor's Bureau newsletter. Over 1200 individuals responded to our survey, including 937 residents and 307 visitors.
