WHAT IS FAMILY FARMING?

Family Farming (also Family Agriculture) is a means of organizing agricultural, forestry, fisheries, pastoral and aquaculture production which is 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, reproductive, social and cultural functions.

When we talk about Family Farming, we consider men and women farmers, artisan fishers, pastoralists, gatherers and landless peasants, as well as indigenous people.

Pastoralism

Extensive livestock production systems cover about 25% of the earth's terrestrial surface, produces about 10% of meat used for human consumption and supports 20 million households.

Artisan fishers

The livelihoods of some 357 million people depend directly on small-scale fisheries, which employs over 90% of the World's fishing catch.
