Objective: Work in concert with University of Idaho to identify and quantify barriers to growing and sourcing food locally.
Methods: Stakeholder interviews; forthcoming University of Idaho survey.
Outcomes: The “Production” section is forthcoming. We are also working with the University of Idaho on their upcoming large scale, well-funded project to learn more about barriers and opportunities to farming in Idaho. The University of Idaho survey was conducted with local vendors and their online producer survey will launch November 15, 2015. The CFA qualitative interviews are in progress with Blaine County producers, and the report will be completed by the end of November.
