Production and accounts of organic farming and horticulture

Here you will find statistics on the size of the area grown organically in Denmark and the number of organic farms. The statistics also show whether there are more organic pigs than cows in Denmark, and how much organic farmers earn on crops, dairy cows or pigs.


The production and accounts of organic farmholdings are covered by the following statistical series: 

  • Organic farms and areas describe the number of farms in Denmark and the size of the agricultural area which is grown organically from 1995 to the present.
  • The livestock in organic farming shows the number of organic livestock animals in Danish farming as well as the development from 1995 to the present. 
  • The production of animal products provides information about the production of animal products such as organic milk, butter, cheese and eggs. 
  • Accounts statistics for farmholdings include financial results per farm, family remuneration and financial key figures such as rate of return, labour income and solvency. The statistics also include information about the energy consumption of the farms.
  • Accounts statistics for agricultural crop activities contain detailed statistics for activities within crop cultivation and livestock keeping.

The figures for the organic farms, areas and livestock are based on annual reports from the organic farms. Data has been compiled by the Danish Agricultural Agency.

The accounts statistics are based on a sample of accounts from selected farms with a standard output (turnover) of at least 25,000 Euros (2020).
