Summary of the contribution: small farms could be sustenaible and income allowing to make a farmer live. Some of them are innovative and some farmers present features close to those of the schumpeterian entrepreneur. That is why small farms could be a way for the future of European agriculture. They use more work, less capital: we could think that it is one of the degrowth ways.
