Title Agricultural structure
Alternate Title Farms Run as a Part-time Concern [30]
Publication Date 2008-04-30
Abstract The combination of agriculture with other forms of gainful employment developed at the same time as an economic structure based on a division of labour. Over time the significance of sidelines and other forms of additional income generation in agriculture has shifted repeatedly. As long as farming aimed mainly at self-sufficiency and only surplusses were sold, a smallholding guaranteed survival for many tradespeople. Today the combination of sources of income plays the opposite role: because farming is not profitable enough, another source of income has to be found. Agriculture as a sideline is therefore directly dependent on the general local or regional economy. Stable employment opportunities and good access to rural areas provide a solid basis for part-time farming.
