Family Farming Is The Way To Go

Family farming is inextricably linked to national and global food security. Both in developing and developed countries, family farming is the predominant form of agriculture in the food production sector.

Family farming includes all family-based agricultural activities and it is linked to several areas of rural development.

It is believed that when a family farms together, they will strive to have enough food on their plates and then agree on what to sell.

Family farming creates cohesion in homes and sustainability of the farm even if the family head leaves. It is so common for the family to have misunderstandings during the harvesting and marketing period over who should ‘sell’ the produce.

In many rural set-ups, it is the husband who takes the produce to the market for sale, but what disrupts the cohesion is the failure for him to account for the proceeds.

In some cases, the husband recklessly spends the money on women and alcohol. As a result, the family farming cohesion is broken. Let there be transparency in family farming and food security will surely be improved.
