Abstract

The functions of agricultural holdings have been identified on the basis of identifying the main sources of income. As a result of the transformation of Polish economy and integration with the EU, the functions of agricultural holdings have to a large extent changed. Households and production holdings are now treated as two separate entities. At the same time polarization of farm households have emerged into agricultural holdings and subsistence farms. The number of holdings with mixed sources of income has also increased. Agricultural holdings and rural areas evolved from single-functional to multi-functional in nature.
