  1. Work without workers: legal geographies of family farm exclusions from labour laws in Alberta, Canada.Emily Reid-Musson, Ellen MacEachen, Mary Beckie & Lars Hallström - 2022 - Agriculture and Human Values 39 (3):1027-1038.
    Under the Canadian labour laws that govern workplace safety, wage, and other work conditions, ‘family’ workers are not covered by the law under special rules for agriculture. Among other legal exclusions, the family farm exclusion contributes to a dearth of basic work, health, and safety standards in the sector, despite the commercialization and industrialization of family farming activities. Through a focus on Alberta, Canada—where farm labour rules have only applied to agriculture since 2016—this article explores the family exclusion in relation (...)

  • Pockets of Peasantness: Small-Scale Agricultural Producers in the Central Finger Lakes Region of Upstate New York.Johann Strube - 2019 - Agriculture and Human Values 36 (4):837-848.
    Some farmers in the Central Finger Lakes Region of New York balance their production between principles of peasant farming and capitalist farming. They struggle to extend their sphere of autonomy and subsistence production, while extended commodity production is often a response to external forces of the state and capital. This struggle, together with a quantitative increase of small farms, can be described as an instance of repeasantization. Based on inductive, empirical qualitative social research, this case study describes the economy and (...)

  • Images of Work, Images of Defiance: Engaging Migrant Farm Worker Voice Through Community-Based Arts.J. Adam Perry - 2019 - Agriculture and Human Values 36 (3):627-640.
    This article addresses a stated need within the food justice movement scholarship to increase the attention paid to the political socialization of hired farm hands in industrial agriculture. In Canada, tackling the problem of farm worker equity has particular social and political contours related to the Canadian horticultural industry’s reliance on a state-managed migrant agricultural labour program designed to fill the sector’s labour market demands. As Canada’s Seasonal Agricultural Worker Program produces relations of ‘unfree labour’, engaging migrant farm workers in (...)

  • ‘I Will Know It When I Taste It’: Trust, Food Materialities and Social Media in Chinese Alternative Food Networks.Leigh Martindale - 2021 - Agriculture and Human Values 38 (2):365-380.
    Trust is often an assumed outcome of participation in Alternative Food Networks as they directly connect producers with consumers. It is based on this potential for trust “between producers and consumers” that AFNs have emerged as a significant field of food studies analysis as it also suggests a capacity for AFNs to foster associated embedded qualities, like ‘morality’, ‘social justice’, ‘ecology’ and ‘equity’. These positive benefits of AFNs, however, cannot be taken for granted as trust is not necessarily an outcome (...)
