ERS Webinar: America's Diverse Family Farms: 2015 Edition
Farming is still an industry of family businesses. Ninety-nine percent of farms are family farms, and they account for 90 percent of farm production. Small farms make up 90 percent of the farm count and operate 46 percent of the Nation's farmland. Most farm production, however, occurs on midsize and large-scale family farms. In this webinar, Economist Robert Hoppe will present findings from America's Diverse Family Farms: 2015 Edition, a brochure that describes in detail the different types of farms in the United States.
