Resumé

The purpose of this article is to use af series of business interviews in the UK and Denmark as a means of interrogating the categorisation of rural businesses presented in an earlier publication which sought to understand the character of different businesses.Rather than defining a rural business purely on its geographical location, the engangement of a business within a rural economy and its relations with both rural and urban environments are more complex issues. A wider coneceptualisation how rural social relations, cultural influences and landscape values forms the basis for analysing how these assets can create value for ural businesses. Understanding these issues can better inform organisations that are seeking to support the rural economy adn rural communities.It can also guide buisness owners themselves as to how the may benefit from being a part of, or associated with, the rural economy in capturing the possibilities linked to a growing urban population. The findings reveal how the landscape assets are intertwined in the business concepts as positive drivers despite many voices within rural and economic research pointing at disadvantages related to distance, sparseness of infrastructure or service provision. The research analysis draws in Actor-network theory and this tool reveals promising prospects for future place-based studies in how landscape assets can be enacted in the development of the rural economy.
