Pennsylvania Study Explores Impact of COVID-19 on Farm Revenues

Pasa Sustainable Agriculture partnered with Chatham University to study the impact of the pandemic on Pennsylvania farmers across the entire 2020 growing season. Results of their research survey of 300 farmers and interviews with a subset of these farmers were published in the Journal of Agriculture, Food Systems, and Community Development. Just under half the farmers (42%) reported a loss of revenue, while over half (58%) reported either no change or an increase in revenue in 2020.
