Look at the Census of Agriculture and you can learn a lot about farming in Kansas. When the last ag census was conducted in 2007, the average farm was 707 acres and worth more than $600,000. The U.S. Department of Agriculture updates that information every five years and is getting ready to send out new surveys in a few weeks. One trend to watch for is the growing number of small farms. As Grant Gerlock of Harvest Public Media reports, they're easy to miss and some would rather not be counted.
