Some farms have high business incomes while others make large losses

Bar charts show, for different farm types, the proportion of farms which made a profit in 2020-21 with and without support payments.

Business performance varies within farm types. There are loss making and high income farms in all farm types.

More LFA and lowland livestock farms have low incomes or make a loss. However, some LFA and lowland livestock farms do have incomes of £100,000 or over.

Among dairy, general cropping and cereal farms there are more farms that are highly profitable, and some farms with very high income. However, some farms still make a loss. The spread of farm incomes is widest among dairy and cereal farms.
