Empirically the sociology of agriculture and food has an industry focus on agriculture as a location for production of food and fiber, from raw materials to refined products on the market. along the value chains of agriculture and food are sociological questions asked about the motivation of involved actors, on the distribution of money, work, organization, social inequality, institutional arrangements (regulations versus norms) and not least questions of power, and power relationships between individuals, groups and sectors. Here we also find the farms, farmers and their families. the article has its analytical focus on the development and survivability of the norwegian family farming system within a capitalist market system that dominates the markets in the western world. Sosiologi i dag 46:2 (2016) 7-28
