Notes: Multiple-operator farms have more than one operator. Multiple-generation farms are multiple-operator farms with a difference of at least 20 years between the ages of the youngest and oldest operators. The remaining farms (not shown) are single-operator farms with only one operator. Small family farms have gross cash farm income (GCFI) < $350,000. Midsize family farms have GCFI of $350,000-$999,999. Large-scale family farms have GCFI of $1,000,000 or more.
