The recent efforts to document the new practices occurring in rural landscapes have produced two explanatory frameworks of rural change. One asserts a paradigm shift in rural development based around new agri-food networks and the expansion of non-agriculturally related activities in the landscape, while the other argues there is more continuity than change in current practices. A case study of livestock farming in Devon is presented. The farmers adopt agri-centric coping strategies embedded within a productivist framework, rather than constituting a new paradigm of rural development
