Number of greenhouse horticulture farms in the Netherlands 2007-2019

Between 2007 and 2019, the number of greenhouse horticulture farms in the Netherlands nearly halved, from over 1,500 to just 828. This is not an isolated trend. In roughly the same period, other types of agricultural farms also decreased in number – although they did not experience such a steep fall as the greenhouse farms. The number of arable farms for example decreased from over 12,000 to just 10,842, and the number of fruit farms fell by more than 300 as well in the last 12 years.

 Organic farming is booming

  Going against the general trend, the number of organic farms in the Netherlands actually enjoyed a growth of nearly 400 farms in the last years, from 1,462 in 2010 to 1,849 in 2018. Similarly, the number of organic tree nurseries more than doubled, reaching 42 in 2017.

Export of agricultural products

  Although the number of production sites is decreasing, the Netherlands remains one of the largest exporters of agricultural products in the world. In 2018, the value of agri-food products exported from the country reached nearly 90 billion euros. Neighboring country Germany was the most important trading partner for agricultural products. In 2019, over one third of the agricultural products exported from the Netherlands were destined for Germany.
