Whether you just look at subsidies or include all payments, farmers make more money from the EU and the government than they do from agriculture.

If we look at cereal farms alone, they lost £9,500 on agriculture in 2014/15.In the same year the average farm business profit in Northern Ireland was £24,900.The value of direct payments, agri-environment payments, and other forms of compensation received by farmers came to £25,600.So overall, the average cereal farm made about £45,000 in farm business profit in 2014/15. Over the same time specialist poultry farms, which have the largest business profit of any of the types listed by Defra, made £126,800 per farm.Well over half of that came from agriculture, £79,300 per farm, and only £8,500 came from subsidies.
