An Overview of Beginning Farms and Farmers

Nigel Key and Greg Lyons

No 301074, Economic Brief from United States Department of Agriculture, Economic Research Service

Abstract: Beginning farms (those on which all operators have no more than 10 years of farming experience) operate at a smaller scale, earn less farm income, and have more debt relative to their assets than more established farms. Beginning farm households work more off-farm and have less wealth than established farm households.
