Abstract: The northeastern region of the United States comprises 5 percent of the United States land mass but houses 20 percent of the population. Even within this relatively small, densely population area, agriculture, forestry and fisheries are important economic components at the household, state and regional levels. At the request of Farm Credit East, we conducted a study to document and ascertain the significance in the economies of eight northeastern states of the agriculture sector, defined broadly as including four Fs: farming, food, forestry and fisheries. As measured in the eight states under study using data from 2012, agriculture contributed $99.4 billion to regional total sales or $2,312 per resident and generated 474,482 jobs.
