My research is focused on the role of family farms in the current society and landscape in Czechia. First of all, I’m going to find a definition of family farms and then I’ll analyze the influence of family farms on the environment and society in Czechia. In the case of the environment, my main focus is land use and family farms. In the case of society, my main focus is the economy (role of family farms in employment, etc.) and the relation between family farms and regional development in general. Another important aspect of my work is the regional differentiation of the family farm’s influence as well as the difference between the role of family farms and other types of agricultural subjects (like cooperative farms or agricultural holdings). For a detailed analysis of my topic, I’m going to make a case study in different regions in Czechia, where mainly qualitative methods like interviews with the farmers will be used.
