The purpose of this study is to contribute to the understanding of changing farm sizes under cultural farmland inheritance and transactions, in the context of succession decision. Results show that farmland inheritance strategies, involving the sharing of farmland amongst children, will not change from their parents and this will decrease farm sizes for the following farming households. In the past, farmers could enlarge farm sizes by purchasing farmland, but that shall become more difficult for future generations because of changing economic conditions. Farm training and providing suitable technology for small scale farms of the future is therefore required.
