Types of Farms

For many living in urban and industrialized areas, they may not realize our essential need for the farming and agricultural industry. We need farmers to provide us with the food we eat. We also rely on farms for other things like Christmas trees and livestock.

  • Farms are vast fields of agriculture set on acres of land that will have rows of crops, like vegetables, tomato plants or apple trees. In addition to produce farming, many farmers will also specialize in raising livestock. Livestock farms will often feature pens that house pigs, poultry like chicken and other animals. A farm may also have horse stables or large fenced fields of dairy cows.
  • Other types of farms, like fish, shrimp and oyster hatcheries reside in the water. Fish farms, of course, are located in plots of water in an ocean, bay, lake or river. A farm is more than meets the eye. They provide goods for sale usually, but the goods are very diverse.
  • Farming can be done on a large corporate scale or on a smaller, scale often distributing goods only locally. Chicken, dairy, vegetable, and beef farms are often corporate farms that supply the foods we eat on a daily basis. Smaller farm businesses, or city co-ops, often will specialize in one type of fruit or vegetable. Organic farming means that no chemicals have been used. All natural fertilizers and environmentally-friendly chemicals are used on an organic farm. Organic farmers often offer their goods for sale at farmer's markets and will be certified as organic.

    Regardless of the end product or type of farm, all use machinery to work the land. Farm machinery includes harvesters, compost systems, and trucks. Other agriculture equipment includes tractors, irrigation and filtration systems, as well as fertilizing equipment. These tools, and many more, are crucial to successful farming techniques.
