Summary/Abstract: Social reproduction of family farms entails both transfer of ownership over property and transfer of power in decision making. Its process, timing, costs and outcomes are conditioned by characteristics of farm and farm environment. Outcomes of social reproduction influence not only other types of family farm reproduction, but also rural family, rural community and peasantry in general. Thus, characteristics of agrarian and rural structure have been analyzed. From the rural sociological perspective, they are considered as factors of social reproduction. The outcomes of social reproduction within post-productivism and post-socialist transition have been examined. Also, four possible scenarios of the effects of social reproduction on production in family farms in contemporary Serbian society have been defined.
