Experiences in Fannin County, Texas, reveal that there are farmers who have families, raise crops and foster other enterprises, yet, their systems of farming and machinery vary to a very large degree. The apparent variations gave need for information to ascertain its relationship to the family life, farm land and enterprises of the farmers. The writer was very desirous of discovering certain aspects because of the close relationship existing between the farmer and his chosen line of work.

This study was limited to fifty Negro farmers in Fannin County, Texas. Its major concern is with an analysis of the system of farmings in use, and their relationship with home and family life, farm land, enterprises and machinery used by these fifty farmers.
