Abstract Farmers and horticulturalists need to change their production methods to achieve a more sustainable agricultural production system. The goal of this project is to understand which farmers successfully adapt their product and/ or production methods. This project diverts from adoption and transition models that are common in agricultural literature and explores and contributes to the growing body of literature on entrepreneurship.
