The average age of farmers has risen by four years from the beginning of the 2000s. The average age of all farmers was 47 in 2000, while it was 51 years in 2013. The share of farmers aged under 35 in the entire farmer population has fallen from 12 per cent in 2000 to eight per cent in 2013. In 2013, nearly one-half or 47 per cent of farmers were aged between 50 and 64. These data derive from the 2013 statistics on the finances of agricultural and forestry enterprises published by Statistics Finland.

Description: The statistics on the finances of agricultural and forestry enterprises replace the agricultural enterprise and income statistics produced from 1973 to 2004 as well as the agricultural income and tax statistics. The new statistics are published only on Statistics Finland’s Internet pages. The first reference year of the statistics is 2005. The statistics describe the economic activity and structure of agricultural and forestry enterprises operating in Finland. The main sources of data for the statistics are tax data on farm enterprises, the Farm Register and a direct statistical survey aimed at farms. Agriculture and forestry are examined separately. The data are classified e.g. by area, production sector and farm size category.
