Number of agriculture companies in the Netherlands 2018, by company type

Total number of agriculture companies in the Netherlands in 2018, by company type

Number of agriculture companies in the Netherlands 2018, by company type In 2018, the Netherlands counted just under 54,000 agricultural companies. Roughly one third of all these companies were dairy farms. On the other hand, there were also approximately 2,600 greenhouse horticulture companies and mushroom farms. Most of these mushroom nurseries were located in the province North Brabant and Limburg.

 Number of dairy farms in the Benelux

Of the Benelux countries, the Netherlands is the country with the largest number of dairy farms. In 2017, neighboring country Belgium counted just over 7,200 dairy farms, or less than half of the dairy farms located in the Netherlands. Since Luxembourg is much smaller than the two other Benelux countries, it probably does not come as a surprise that Luxembourg had the smallest number of dairy farms. In 2017, the Grand Duchy was home to some 700 dairy farms.

Average production of dairy farms

Dairy farms in the Netherlands also had the highest average production. Whereas dairy farms in Belgium and Luxembourg produced around 530-550 tons on average, in the Netherlands this was roughly 300 tons higher per farm.
