This paper presents a Probit model explaining the expansion of part-time farming in the German State of Hesse. Particular emphasis is placed on the personality traits of the agricultural entrepreneur and the labour market. The regression is based on a cross-section data from 74 Hessian farms. The results suggest statistical significance of the personality traits on employment decisions. Other significant variables include the number of adult household members and the intensity of agricultural land use.
