Small Farms Research Center

The Small Farms Research Center at Alabama A&M University (AAMU) conducts and promotes interdisciplinary research on the economic and social development of limited resource, new and beginning farmers and ranchers and rural entrepreneurs in Alabama’s underserved communities. The research focuses on risk management, food safety, land use, quality of life, and methods for studying small farms and policies for stimulating their development. We seek to advance our understanding of socioeconomic processes and our ability to explain state and county differences in rates of growth and levels of development.
