FABRON, Giorgina  and  CASTRO, Mora. Agricultura a pequeña escala en tierras altas y tierras bajas. Estudio comparativo entre la Quebrada de Humahuaca y el partido de Florencio Varela. Mundo agrar. [online]. 2019, vol.20, n.43, pp.109.e1-109.e2. ISSN 1515-5994.

This paper analyzes agriculture in two specific areas of Argentina, linked by a group of migrant families, from Andean highlands to the lowlands Buenos Aires’ periurban. We research small-scale production, in the methodological challenges to characterize it and local knowledge transmission. Methodology is based on the analysis of diverse censual sources and fieldwork from an anthropological perspective. As a result, the producer families were featured and productive - alimentary practices and knowledge were identified, as well as the articulations in the change of the socio-environmental conditions of the same in the migrant territory. It is concluded that small scale agriculture is an adequate category for this case and that migrant families consolidated productive - food knowledge from family farming in the migration process, which makes it possible to consider the existence of a type of food sovereignty from on consumption practices.

Keywords : Family Farming; small-scale producers; food; Quebrada de Humahuaca; Florencio Varela.
