Survival Mechanisms for Maintaining the Family Farm

Due to the vast expansion in farming and the economic instability of agriculture, family farmers have developed a wide variety of formal and informal mechanisms to remain competitive. In some cases, farmers move toward a more formal organization, by incorporating the farm or forming a partnership. In addition to this method, informal steps are often taken, including diversification, and specialization to assure that the farm remains profitable and productive.
