Not nearly as much as farmers wish Here’s a good data source on food prices.

Around 8 cents of every dollar spent on food goes to the actual farm producer. This includes the higher value products like fruit and vegetables which have a higher return to the grower. So unfortunately we aren’t as important as we think especially the bulk grains. Cheap food arguments just make us feel better.
