OTTAWA — The biggest farms in Canada are on the Prairies. And they are huge. In fact, according to Statistics Canada, there are 200 Canadian farms that each comprise more than 25,000 acres. That’s 200 farms that collectively own more than 5-million acres.
Of these massive mega-farms, of more than 25,000 acres each, there are 87 in Alberta, 83 in Saskatchewan and 7 in Manitoba.
Statistics Canada would not break down the number of Ontario farms that have 25,000 acres or more, citing privacy concerns, as there are none or very few.
There are, however, 48 Ontario farms that each have 5,000 acres or more.
