Family Farm Project

What is the Family Farm Project?

The Family Farm Project is a three-year study exploring family farming and community life in Knox County, Ohio. Initial support for the project was provided by a National Endowment for the Humanities Distinguished Teaching Professorship awarded to Kenyon College. Project participants include Kenyon students, faculty and county residents. Much of our work takes place in a Kenyon course, Fieldwork: The Family Farm. We are committed to presenting the results of our work widely through public projects. In 1995, we produced Rural Delivery, a radio series, cassette, and booklet on family farm issues. Through such projects, media coverage and public presentations, the Family Farm Project seeks to inform local, regional, national, and international audiences about the character and significance of family farming in America.
