  • Family farming
  • Activity, including all family-based agricultural functions, that are “a means of organising agricultural, forestry, fisheries, pastoral and aquaculture production […] managed and operated by a family and predominantly reliant on family labor, including both women’s and men’s. The family and the farm are linked, co-evolve and combine economic, environmental, social and cultural functions.”[1]
