  • The influence of factors of the socio-geographical structure of mountain farms in Slovenia upon farm succession statuses and decisions
  • Agriculture ; Farm ; Methodology ; Mountain farming ; Perception ; Slovenia
  • This paper discusses the influence of single factors of the socio-geographical structure of mountain farms in Slovenia, independent of each other, as well as in conjunction with each other upon farm succession statuses and decisions. The methodology
  • is described in detail, especially the discrete choice models by which these influences were assessed. The results were linked with findings from other researchers and show that the householder’s perceptions about mountain farms, work and life on the farm
  • , as well as tradition hold the most vital role with regard to succession on mountain farms. At the same time, in order to ensure succession and continuation of farming on the mountain farm, an appropriate economic basis must be assured. - (IKR)

  • Rural landscapes are maintained and changed through farmers’ decisions and practices. The farmer has many different roles of which three roles related to the farm as a whole is investigated : producer, owner and citizen. Production based decisions
  • are assumed to be more important for full time farmers than for hobby farmers who have their main income outside the farm and who may consider their farm more as a living place than as a production place. Based on a large survey carried out in Hvorslev
  • , Eastern Jutland, Denmark in 2008 farmers’ landscape practices are analysed in relation to their background, occupational status and view of the farms as a production place versus a living place. 377 farmers are interviewed and some comparisons are made
  • to a similar survey in the same area in 1996. A significant proportion of farmers are hobby farmers who mainly see the farm as a living place and who have different landscape practices than full time farmers have.
