    Reinventing the Food Chain [1]. John Ikerd [2]. The American food system of the 21 st century will be different. This is perhaps the only thing we can say with any degree of confidence about our future food system. American agriculture of the future will be very different from agriculture of the present as well as different from agriculture of the past. The wildlife habitat values of farm woodlands and wetlands are another example of typically off-farm benefits. That is, habitat values are enjoyed by hunters, birdwatchers, and even by people who get pleasure from the mere knowledge that wildlife are provided habitat for their continued existence.   Literature concerning the uptake of Agri‐Environmental Measures (AEM) and other programs aiming to enhance farmland biodiversity suggests that their uptake, as well as the sense of ownership, are influenced by personal attitudes, subjective norms, and social interaction and control (Burton & Wilson ; Defrancesco et al. ; Burton et by:
