Ninety-one percent of U.S. farms are classified as small — gross cash farm income (GCFI) of less than $250,000. About 60% of these small farms are very small, generating GCFI of less than $10,000. These very small noncommercial farms exist independently of the farm economy because their operators rely heavily on off-farm income. The remaining small farms — small commercial farms — account for most small-farm production. Overall farm production continues to shift to larger operations, while the number of small commercial farms and their share of sales maintain a long-term decline. The shift to larger farms will continue to be gradual, because some small commercial farms are profitable and others are willing to accept losses. Illus.
