Small Farms

Small farms and ranches play a vital role in supporting the competitiveness and sustainability of U.S. rural and farm economies and in protecting and enhancing its natural resource base and the environment. These numerous and diverse small-scale operations provide a nursery for the development of new enterprises and marketing systems, and a replenishment of the farming population.
