A

chose A over B because of the mismatch of 'the small farmer' and the 'they' in the last clause.

I eliminated all the answer choices with 'they'...the rest were too awkwardly worded.

B)"the small farmer" is not compatible with "they".
C)changed original meaning of sentence
D)same reason as B.
E)same reason as B.

A is my answer, as 'who' is used correctly and follows 'small farmer'

going with A here, B has an incorrect use of 'it', D just has a different meaning they way it is written. No chance for E either. Answer has to be A.
