This goal of this paper is to measure and to make an analysis of the level of the familiar agricultural agribusiness in the state of Rio Grande do Sul, and comparing it with the one for the Brazilian economy as a whole, for the period from 1995 to 2003. Using input-output models it was possible to estimate the importance of the Gross Domestic Product of the familiar agribusiness in the national economy. The results show that around 1/3 of the Brazilian agribusiness comes from the agricultural production done by the familiar agriculture, the numbers are even more stricken for the state of Rio Grande do Sul, where 1/2 of the agribusiness GDP comes from the familiar agriculture. It was also noticed that the recent development of the familiar agriculture and of its links has been very positive, suppressing, the growth rates found in the non-familiar segment.
