Farm structure census for 2022 Organic production and poultry farming still at a high in 2022

09.05.2023 - In 2022, 48 344 farms were counted in Switzerland, 1.1% fewer than a year earlier. An increasing number of farms are turning to organic farming: in the reporting year, practically every sixth farm was an organic farm (16.2%). At 1 042 000 hectares, the utilised agricultural area was almost as high as in 2021. Livestock numbers developed differently: while the number of dairy cows decreased slightly (-0.5%) and that of pigs increased slightly (+0.5%), the poultry population grew significantly (+4.3%). These are some of the findings of the farm structure census produced by the Federal Statistical Office (FSO).
