An agrarian movement that has been associated with the 1960s counterculture of hippies. The common thread is a call for people to take up smallholding and to grow food from the land with an emphasis on a greater degree of self-sufficiency, autonomy, and local community than found in a prevailing industrial or postindustrial way of life.
The back-to-the-land movement is part of the hippie ideology.
