Considerable research attention has been paid to attempting to understand why farmers choose to farm in certain ways This thesis argues that this body of research could benefit from re-direction in order to better account for the complexity of farming practice. This thesis focuses on farming practice as a social and cultural phenomenon, and in particular explores the construction of 'good' farming practice as part of a complex system of social standing that is influenced by social and cultural factors both within and beyond local community.
