21 Mar 2018
The number of active farms has decreased continuously throughout the statistical reference period starting from 2004. As a whole, the number of active farms has fallen by 31 per cent between 2004 and 2016. The biggest decline in the number of farms concerns farms engaged in pig farming, around 65 per cent. In general, the number of farms engaged in animal farming has fallen faster than the number of farms focusing on plant production. These data derive from the 2016 statistics on the finances of agricultural and forestry enterprises published now.

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.
