The rural municipalities of Pylos and Trifylia, situated on the western part of Messinia, in the Peloponnese region, in Greece, show some characteristics of decline of the familial agricultural activity. Nevertheless, since the beginning of the financial crisis, these municipalities have been in the center of an increased interest in this sector. Indeed many people left the big cities ‒ and still do ‒ in order to set up agricultural activities on these territories. These new farmers contribute to the formation of a new way of viewing agriculture and the link between countryside and town.
