‘The next link in the chain’: children, agri-cultural practices and the family farm

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

  • M. Riley
This article contributes to knowledge of children's geographies by considering the micro-geographies and associated identities of children on family farms. Through focussing on farm practices, and drawing on evidence from the Peak District (UK) it examines how farm children are placed within, and ostensibly adhere to, discourses of the family farm. It moves on to investigate how such identities are far from static and explores the discursive strategies taken by children in shaping their own identities and forging new trajectories as the often pivotal 'next link in the chain' on these farms.
