Most Valuable Crops Grown in New York

(STACKER) — There are more than 2 million farms in the United States, about 98% of which are operated by families, individuals, family partnerships or family corporations, according to the American Farm Bureau Federation. About 86% of all agricultural products in the United States are produced on family farms or ranches. A single farm feeds an average of 166 people per year, both in the US and abroad. Still, agriculture is a mere slice of the US economy and accounts for just 1% of US GDP: family farmers and ranchers make up less than 2% of the US population.

More African Americans are operating farms now than ever before, as are Hispanic and Latino farm operators. One in four farmers are beginning farmers, a term that represents those with less than 10 years in farm work; their average age is 46 years. About 11% of American farmers served or are serving in the military.

The US is projected to export a record $191 billion of agricultural products in 2022. Stacker compiled a list of the most valuable crops grown in New York using data from the US Department of Agriculture’s State Agriculture Overview. Crops are ranked by total annual value of production as of July 16, 2022.
