What does faire-valoir mean in the following context?

From a book on family farming:

Les paysans sont considérés comme prioritairement orientés sur la production pour la subsistance, à temps complet ou à temps partiel dans le cas de petites unités, et produisant des cultures alimentaires et commerciales tout en développant des activités non agricoles. Ainsi les paysans peuvent être définis comme des petits producteurs familiaux qui opèrent en faire-valoir direct ou indirect.

Is faire-valoir direct something like ownership of the farm? Can I say for the last sentence: Peasants can thus be defined as small family farmers who have direct or indirect ownership of their farms.

    Faire-valoir indirect : the farmer work this land but doesn't own it.
    Faire-valoir direct : the farmer work this land and owns it.

    Peasants can thus be defined as small family producers who work a land they do or don't own.
