Notes: Rate of return on equity = 100*(net farm income – charge for operator and unpaid labor – charge for management)/net worth. The graph excludes the 0.5 percent of farms with 0 or negative net worth. Small family farms have gross cash farm income (GCFI) < $350,000. Midsize family farms have GFCI of $350,000-$999,999. Large-scale family farms have GFCI of $1,000,000 or more. Source: USDA, Economic Research Service and USDA, National Agricultural Statistics Service, 2011 Agricultural Resource Management Survey.
