Abstract

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.
