Average sales by farm

This map shows how much money each farm is making on average, and there is huge variation. Some are selling less than $10,000 in goods a year. But others are selling more than $750,000. How do they get so productive? The methods vary. That area along the Mississippi is raking in the dough with soy and cotton. The rich region in Texas is doing it through cattle. Part of North Carolina is making good money off of a variety of livestock. And California is doing well with a mix of livestock, produce, and nuts.
