Supplementary notes
* The farm definition was changed in 1993 to include maple syrup, short rotation woody crops, and places with 5 or more horses. A farm is any establishment from which $1,000 or more of agricultural products were sold or would normally be sold during the year. Includes some accounting for individual farms on reservation land in Arizona and New Mexico from 1998 forward.
This statistic was assembled from several USDA annual statistics reports.
