Agriculture

Total gross farm receipts (gross farm income) rose to $473 million for 2010. The gross farm receipts and total expenses each rose about 19 per cent from 2005 to 2010. Net income was up about 18 per cent across the region over the same time period, a smaller increase than the 24 per cent increase seen in the 2006 Census. Woolwich and Wellesley Townships contain just over 70 per cent of all farms in the region and accounted for two-thirds of all gross farm receipts, and just over 70 per cent of the region's farming net income in 2010, as shown in the table below. Waterloo Region as a whole accounted for four per cent of Ontario's gross farm receipts.
