Number of Montana farms increase (Feb 9, 2008)

The U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) says Montana is bucking the national farming trend. According to new calculations, figures show there were more than 28,000 farms in Montana in 2007, an increase of about 200 farms from the 2006 figures.

In addition, farm numbers in the highest economic sales class contained 800 farms in 2007, about 100 farms more than in 2006.

The average Montana farm was more than 2,000 acres in 2007, which is a 4% increase over 2006.

Although Montana has seen growth in farms, the total number in the U.S was down 0.6% in 2007.
