Abstract This article summarizes the development of farming styles research in the Netherlands. It shows how these research results positively articulated with several new developments in Dutch agriculture. At the same time, though, these results also ran counter to the hegemonic views embodied in the Ministry of Agriculture, the Farmers Union and the Agricultural University. The article argues that the current agricultural crisis creates, more than ever before, a need to reinvigorate inquiries into the heterogeneity of farming. The study of, and reflection on, differentiated development trajectories that were actively constructed during previous crises, should be an integral part of such inquiries.
