L’exploitation familiale et son rapport au territoire de 1960 à aujourd’hui

Abstract : Marked by a history of deterritorialization and reterritorialization, family farms have been successively qualified as sectorial, productivist and then multifunctional, embedded in their territories or post-productivist. In order to understand the genesis of this model of " territorialized farm " , this paper proposes a geo-historical review of political and scientific debates on family farm over the last 50 years. Family farms thus appear as social entities redefined by the successive agricultural and rural development approaches. This analysis highlights the role of scientists in legitimating and defending the different models. While the analytical framework of farm systems is continuing to expand, such multiple and competing reclassifications could lead to confuse the actual object on the one hand and the socio-political project on the other. This tends to conceal life, professional and inheritance choices of the farmer and his family which are however at the center of the rationale governing family farm.
