Maryland Grown: How What We Eat Compares With What We Grow

The USDA Census of Agriculture provides a wealth of data on what, where and how much land is farmed across the country. This invaluable information can help inform and guide agriculture planning and allow researchers, farmers and consumers to see trends from past to present. This report will examine crop, acreage, and animal data from the 2012 Census of Agriculture and translate them into estimates of how many pounds of food is produced per crop and livestock animal in the state of Maryland. It also explores how much food is consumed by Marylanders using estimates of food availability. Lastly, a comparison is made between production and consumption estimates.
