The farmers of the associative movement " Terre de liens " in France: reshaping farming representations and identities

Abstract : This article explores the ruptures and con-tinuities in the farmer's ways of being in a contemporary and activist organization called " Terre de liens ". This uncommon French structure, which buys and leases land to farmers, tries to raise public awareness of agricultural issues and to integrate members who are traditionally far away from land tenure issues. Even if the main purposes of this organization is to fight against land speculation, provide support to the setting-up of farmers and develop sustainable activities , the action of actually and concretely setting-up farmers raises many questions, among which the place and representations of the farmers in this process. This article will study the case of the farmer profile within " Terre de liens " , in order to highlight what being farmer in this structure changes or does not change. This study will try to show how the socio-professional identities of the farmers could be transformed.
