Some folks follow baseball stats, some enjoy perusing financial market stats (well, maybe not so much right now), and then there are some of us who fill our leisure reading time with agriculturally related stats. For you fellow farm junkies out there, I give you a link to the recently released
2007 US Census of Agriculture!
One interesting note, for the first time ever this year's census includes separately collected data specifically related to organic agriculture (see Table 43). Seems that next to Kalifornia, our fair state blows the rest of the country away with regards to value of sales of organically produced commodities...and we do it with fewer acres in production and fewer farms than a number of other states. Way to go Washington farmers!
