Farm Accounts in England is the primary publication from the Farm Business Survey. It provides information on farm incomes, outputs and costs for the various farm types, farm sizes, regions and economic performance.
This publication has been prepared by the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (Defra) from the results of the Farm Business Survey (FBS) in England carried out by six universities and agricultural colleges. The tables relate to the samples of farms providing information on their 2012/13 and 2013/14 accounts, but are weighted to represent all farms with a total economic Standard Output of 25,000 euros and above. Note that although the tables are referenced in the report they are not published in that document and need to be downloaded separately via the dataset link.
Nearly all farms in the FBS have accounting years ending between 31 December and 30 April; on average, the accounts end in February. Definitions of the income measures and other terms used in the publication are given in Appendix 2.
