The rural space in Israel has been undergoing a process of economic, social and physical restructuring for a number of years, resulting in the appearance of a multifunctional space, characterized by a growing number of pluriactive households. A major aspect of this process is the emergence of farmer-entrepreneurs, who, besides their farming activities, operate non-farming businesses on the family farm in the Moshav type settlement. The paper characterises these farmers-entrepreneurs, explains the underlying causes for their choice of pluriactivity as an income-producing adjustment strategy, and identifies the impact of their entrepreneurial activity on the local community and region. It is argued that these farmers turn out to be important driving forces of local development at both the community and the regional levels.(original abstract)
