Island Agricultural Production

Here are some approximate numbers I heard at a recent conference regarding agriculture production on the Island. 112 Million in Production. 10% of the farmers have gross sales over $100,000 and account for 80% of the production. These would be the large Dairy farms, chicken operations and market gardens. The largest portion of farmers, 65%, fall into the under $10,000 in gross sales category. Some of these would be tax farmers that farm enough to get farm land tax status at a lower rate. The remaining 25% have gross sales between $10,000 and $100,000 in gross sales. These guys are serious but not large. They have the most potential for increased sales. Some interesting numbers were mentioned that 90 to 95% of food comes in from the mainland, Huge local market not being satisfied. Sounds like an opportunity.
