Family Farm research, part 2
Please share widely:
We are recruiting participants for the second round of interviews for our study Canadian “family farms” in the twenty-first century. This study aims to better understand how well the term “family farm” applies to today’s farms in Canada. The questions you will be asked will consist in understanding some of the day-to-day on your farm, the importance you place on the ideas and values around “family farming”, and your experiences and opinions on the broader Canadian agricultural landscape (e.g. changes you are seeing in your area in farm ownership or your community). Our research team consists of Dr. Irena Knezevic (Carleton University), Dr. Kelly Bronson (St. Thomas University) and Chantal Clement (graduate student at Carleton University).
We are interested in speaking to Canadian farmers over the age of 18, whose farms fit the designation of a “family farm”. (A family farm is any farm not managed by a commune, co-operative, or a non-family corporation). If you are interested to participate you will be asked for one 30-60 minute phone interview. If you would like to participate in this research project, or have any questions, please contact Chantal Clement at firstname.lastname@example.org. Alternatively, you can also contact Dr. Irena Knezevic at (613) 520-2600 ext. 4121 orIrena.Knezevic@Carleton.ca
