Average size of farms continued to grow
30 Mar 2022
The number of all types of farms has decreased from 2004 to 2020 by a total of around 39 per cent. The biggest drop in the number of farms, around 90 per cent, took place in the size class where the farm size was under five hectares. The number of farms has grown since 2004 only among farms of over 100 hectares. The number of these farms has more than doubled between 2004 and 2020. These data derive from the 2020 statistics on the finances of agricultural and forestry enterprises published by Statistics Finland.

Description: The statistics on the finances of agricultural and forestry enterprises replace the agricultural enterprise and income statistics produced from 1973 to 2004 as well as the agricultural income and tax statistics. The new statistics are published only on Statistics Finland’s Internet pages. The first reference year of the statistics is 2005. The statistics describe the economic activity and structure of agricultural and forestry enterprises operating in Finland. The main sources of data for the statistics are tax data on farm enterprises, the Farm Register and a direct statistical survey aimed at farms. Agriculture and forestry are examined separately. The data are classified e.g. by area, production sector and farm size category.
