Raspberry and Blackberry Pricing Survey 2018

NARBA has been surveying grower prices since 2013, and is pleased to have the University of Arkansas a a collaborator this year.  Please participate using the link below. If you don’t know your 2018 prices yet, you can report 2017 prices. THANK YOU!!  

Dear Producer,

Researchers at the University of Arkansas, in collaboration with the North American Raspberry & Blackberry Association (NARBA), and the University of Vermont, are conducting a survey to learn more about caneberry pricing and retail strategies for 2018. 

Responses will be recorded anonymously and no identifying personal information will be collected within the survey.  The survey should take less than 10 minutes to complete.  Your participation is completely voluntary. You are free to refuse to participate in the research and to stop completing the survey at any time.

Information collected in the survey will be used to gain a better understanding of the marketing, pricing, and sales strategies currently being used by caneberry producers across the United States and Canada.  Results will be aggregated and published in the June issue of The Bramble, the North American Raspberry and Blackberry Association’s member newsletter.  A report will also be emailed to all participants who request this option.

To access the survey please click the following link:

If you know growers who do not use the internet or if you prefer not to fill out an online form, a printable pdf of the survey may be found here. It can then be mailed in.

If you have any questions about the survey itself, please contact Jennie Popp by email or phone at jhpopp@uark.edu or 479-575-7381.   You may also contact NARBA by email at raspberryblackberry@gmail.com, or by phone at 919-542-4037.
