All the ways food gets made (and transformed into edible form)
Agricultural practices > Farming culture[resources currently marked with this tag were originally marked with the Scalar tag "Farming culture" with the definition below]
This phrase encompasses the influences on social and cultural aspects of farm-life, including managerial structure, urban and rural identity, the family, gender relations, faith, tradition, and personal histories.
One particularly important phrase to note within this category is the family farm, which is used often used to mean:
- Smaller or owner-managed operations, and to imply care for the land and community as opposed to "corporate" farming.
- Farms owned and run by a single family, or
- Farms owned by a single family
- Can be misleading, however, as corporate ownership of agricultural land is prohibited in Minnesota and 8 other states, and very large industrial farms are often family-owned. Legal details here:
- "the responsibility for a piece of agricultural land is changing hands" (see Farms Transitions Toolkit)
- Ownership changing completely
- Ownership shifting to the next generation
- Management of day-to-day operations is changing, but ownership is not
