WHAT IS A FAIfM?
Seems n foolish question to nsV,
doesn't itf Almost anyone can tell
off-hand just what a farm is and
knows one when he ices it. .
But do you happen to Know the
interpretation Uncle Sam places on
the word "farm" for census pur
poses! Not Then read how his Bu
reau of the Census defines the word:
"A farm for census purposes nil
the land which is directly farmed
by one person conducting agricul
tural operations, either by his own
labor or with the assistance of mem
bers of his household or hired em
In further explanation of this defi
nition the Census Bureau points out
that the term "agricultural opera
tions' is used as a general term re
ferring to the work of growing crops,
producing other agricultural prod
ucts and raising domestic animals,
poultry or bees.
From this definition it will be seen
that a farm may consist of a single
tract of land or of a number of sep
arate and distinct tracts. And these
several tracts may be held under
different tenures ns, for anstnnce.
when one tract is owned by the farm
er and another is rented by him.
Thus if n man who owns 100 ncres
rents an additional ten acres from
some one else and operates both the
100 acres and the ten acres, then his
"farm" includes both tracts of land
comprising 110 ncres.
By the same token n landowner
has one or more tenants, renters,
croppers or managers, each different
tract of land operated by any such
tenant, renter,, cropper or manager
is considered a separate and distinct
farm by the Census Bureau. Or, to
give an example, if a man owning
120 ncres of land, rents 40 acres to
a tenant and farms the remaining
80 ncres himself, his farm is the 80
acres which he operates, not the 120
acres which he owns, while the 40
acre tract which he rents to a tenant
comprises a separate farm to be re
ported in the name of the tenant!
Another question to be determined
is how important does an agricul
tural enterprise have to be in order
to secure recognition in the census
ns a farm? A small vegetable gar
den or a chicken yard accommodat
ing a few busv hens will not be al
lowed to qualify as a "farm" in the.
census no mntter with what pardon
able pride and satisfaction the pro
prietor may view his agricultural enterprise.
But if the garden or chicken yard
expands until it covers not less than
three acres of ground, or until it re
quires tor its enre tne continuous
services of at lenst one person, or
vields products annually to the value
of $250 or more, it comes within the
census definition of a farm and will
be recognized ns such nnd counted.
The ngricultnre schedule contains
many questions regarding inrm
values, expenses and live stock as
well as the ncrenge and quantity of
crops raised in the year 1919. Cen
sus Bureau officials are urging the
farmers everywhere to prepare for
tlo census enumerator by looking
over (heir books and records so that
accurate answers may be furnished
In this connection tho Bureau of
the Census emphasizes the fact that
information furnished to census
takers is absolutely confidential,
made so by Act of Congress, nnd
that under no circumstances can
any such information be used ns a
basis for taxation.
"Co-operation between farmers
and the census officials next Janu
ary is more necessary nnd vital tlwn
ever before," declares Director of
the Census Sam L. Rogers. "The
world war and the part that the far
mer played Jn it and will continue to
play in tho rehabilitation of Europe
servo to make tho agriculture sec
tion of tho Fourteenth Decennial
Census tho most important in the
nntion's history. Absolute accuracy
and completeness in tho census re
turns is tho gonl toward which every
citizen should strive."
