The 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 America are produced on ranches or family farms. A single farm feeds an average of 166 people a year, both in the United States and abroad. Even so, agriculture is only a fraction of the US economy, accounting for only 1% of US GDP – farming and ranching families make up less than 2% of the US population.

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

The United States is expected to export a record $191.0 billion in agricultural products in 2022. Stacker compiled a list of the most valuable crops grown in New York City using data from the United States Department of Agriculture outline of state agriculture. Crops are ranked by total annual value of production as of July 16, 2022.
