The Census of Agriculture is completed every five years and is conducted by USDA. The Census of Agriculture is the overall count of U.S. farms and ranches and the people who own and operate them. Even small plots of land – whether it be rural or urban – growing fruits, vegetables, or food animals count if $1,000 or more of these products were raised and sold, or normally would have been sold, during the Census year. The Census of Agriculture, looks at land use and ownership, operator characteristics, farm production practices, income and expenditures. It is vital for farmers to take part in the 2022 data collection so every farm in the U.S. will be counted!

The Census of Agriculture provides the only source of uniform, comprehensive, and impartial agriculture data for every county in our nation. Through the Census of Agriculture, producers can show the nation the value and importance of agriculture and will influence decisions that will shape the future of U.S. agriculture. All farm information provided by farmers to the Census of Agriculture will be kept confidential and cannot be disclosed to any government or private entity by law.
