BEGINNING FARMERS

USDA’s Economic Research Service says large-scale beginning farms are most likely to be in the Midwest, but below the national average. The concentration of cash grain farms in the Midwest, which on average are larger than farms specializing in other types of commodities, not only explains the region’s higher shares of mid-size and large scale beginning farms, but may also explain the fact that fewer of its farms are operated by beginning farmers.
