96% of Cannabis farms are family businesses.
The vast majority of farms and ranches in the United States are family-owned and operated. USDA classifies family farms as “any farm organized as a sole proprietorship, partnership, or family corporation. Family farms exclude farms organized as non-family corporations or cooperatives, as well as farms with hired managers“. Under this definition, the National Agricultural Statistics Service’s Census of Agriculture reported that family farms account for almost 96% of the 2,204,792 farms in the United States.
