This is the inaugural lecture from Sally Shortall, Duke of Northumberland Professor of Rural Economy, Newcastle University. It features an introduction by the Duke of Northumberland.

When we think about farming, we tend to think of the mechanics of agriculture, yet it is people who farm, and in most of Europe it is families.

This lecture, by Sally Shortall, highlights the need for a social science perspective to consider how family dynamics shape farming practices. It considers how the family and farm interact, with examples of ageing farmers, new entrants, and gender inequalities. An understanding of the social dimensions of farming is key to a successful industry.
