SUBJECT: SONDEO



You asked for some feedback on the approach we anticipate using
for the Sondeo prior to going to the field. We will plan to
start calling people to make appointments as soon as we hear back
from you, so if you can respond by Wednesday (tomorrow morning)
it would be great.

We have made up a list of 48 farmers from the two lists Francis
Akins provided us. These will be divided into four groups. The
areas where the groups will work are: Chiefland vicinity,
Williston vicinity, Inglis vicinity and Cedar Key vicinity
including the southern part of the Chiefland area.

We plan to introduce ourselves as being from the University of
Florida and working with the Levy County Agricultural Agent of
the Cooperative Extension Service. We will not mention the Tax
Assessor. We will indicate that we are talking with persons who
have small holdings (20 acres or less) and have, or have
requested, an agricultural classification on it. The reason we
are interested is because the agricultural agent wants to find
out what kind of help he might be able to provide them with their
agricultural enterprises.

We will then identify the acreage we are talking about and ask
them what kind of agricultural activities they have on the land.

An Equal Opportunity/Affirmative Action Institution







At this point, we will let the conversation go towards how they
feel about what they are doing, trying to get an idea of their
reasons for "farming" without leading them in to any specific
discussion of the agricultural classification. This may be the
most important part of the conversations. We may be able to help
you understand what kinds of help would be most useful to them.

In talking about their experience and knowledge regarding what
they are doing, we may be able to get at the question of whether
they inherited or bought the land without asking directly. Also,
in talking about costs, we may be able to raise the question of
taxes without specifically connecting it to the classification.

We are aware that land can have more than one classification on
it (e.g. agricultural and wetlands) and are looking into the law
to be more knowledgeable before going to the field. We are also
aware that there will be sensitivities regarding the
classification. However, I believe our approach will allow us to
get a good feel of the situation without stirring up any
problems.

Although the teams (4) all share information with each other and
each will discuss the situation in the whole county, each team
will put together a separate report. I need this for grading
purposes! They will make oral presentations starting at 3PM on
Friday March 4. You and/or Francis are more than welcome to
attend if you have the time. Whether or not you can, we will
prepare a composite report which should be available within a few
days after the oral presentation. We will get it to you and then
can discuss any follow-up that might be useful.

I look forward to hearing from you.
