This report provides accurate, detailed information on the structure and finances of U.S. farms, including the relationship of farm size and type to agricultural production, financial performance, sources of farm household income, and the extent of off-farm work. It shows that most U.S. farms -- 97% in 2011 -- are family operations, and even the largest farms are predominantly family-run. Midsize and large-scale family farms account for 8% of U.S. farms but 60% of the value of production. Small family farms make up 90% of the U.S. farm count but produce a more modest 26% share of farm output. Nonfamily farms account for the remaining 3% of farms and 15% of production. Small farms are less profitable than larger farms, on average, and their operator households tend to rely on off-farm income for their livelihood. Tables and figures. This is a print on demand report.
