I suppose it comes down to what is the primary use of the land is.
"Recreational agriculture" suggests the land is residential primarily.
I too grow veggies in my tiny garden, but it is "recreational farming"
and the property is a city residence. Otherwise the only difference is
size and I don't think that should be what determines the category.
recreational farmer :-)
