Small area and economically small farms by Member State

69% of all farms in the EU-28, have a surface of less than 5 hectares and together represent 7% of the EU’s agricultural area. Farms with an output of less than €25 000 represent 86% of all EU farms, but their combined output of €11 billion accounts for only 13% of the economic output from all EU farms.

In Romania, Bulgaria, Croatia, Portugal and in the majority of regions in Greece, more than 95% of farms have an economic output of less than €25 000. By contrast, less than 25% of farms in 14 regions across the Netherlands, Belgium, Germany and France fall into this category.
