Folks, the results of the 2012 Census of Agriculture have just been released.
I’ve had my own thoughts about how the new numbers might go, but it’s always good to work from the latest data, as reported to the National Agriculture Statistics Service by our landowners.
The number of farms reported in 2012 was 869, down from 962 in the the 2007 Census, which bounced up from 883 in 2002. And while the average size of a farm didn’t change much, now 148 acres per farm compared to 152 in 2007, the big change is simply the number of acres in farmland.
