Les fermes collectives, un modèle innovant au regard de problématiques actuelles du monde agricole. L'ex Basse-Normandie : un territoire propice ?

Abstract : The aim of this work is to seek innovative solutions to the dominant agricultural model and the alternative individual model, both of which are marked by the individualism that is characteristic of our society. One of the challenges linked to the limits of these models is to find forms of organising work that could facilitate the handover of large farms, such as dairy farms. A preliminary fieldwork phase made it possible to establish criteria for defining collective farms. An interview phase was necessary to gather data on collective farms in metropolitan France. Agricultural practices, territorial anchoring (through marketing channels, activities, members' commitments) and working conditions were analysed in these structures where the pooling of production factors facilitates the implementation of new work organisations. The geographical distribution of collective farms is uneven across metropolitan France. The analysis of the socio-territorial context of each farm made it possible to highlight the influence of various factors, such as tourism, proximity to large cities, or the presence of activist networks linked to peasant agriculture. Additional fieldwork and new interviews were conducted in Normandy with farmers, professional agricultural organisations, institutions and students. The limits of this development and avenues of reflection that could promote it were highlighted.
