New Perspectives on the Next Generation of Farm Households

The presentation in this session from American Farmland Trust's Farmland, Food and Livable Communities Conference looks at how a lot of household matters enter in to decisions about whether the farm expands or persists across generations. This session will review the latest research on farm household decision-making and provide a perspective of a local farm family. A special focus will be on how the demands of childcare, eldercare and healthcare affect the family farm.

Session Presenters: Jill Clark, John Glenn School of Public Affairs, Ohio State University (moderator); Michelle Howell, Hickory Lane Farm, Kentucky; Shoshanah Inwood, Community Development and Applied Economics, University of Vermont.
