USDA Census Results In!

I had no idea that the USDA took a farming census every five years tracking everything from who's farming to what kind of farming is happening. Information about specific states and the compiled results of previous surveys (beginning with 1840) are also available.

The most interesting thing from the latest survey? An increase in the number of farms (more than 75,000) with the majority of those owned and operated by younger farmers.
