Family farms are faced with an ever-rising competitiveness on the market. Inorder to meet the requirements on the market family farms are obliged to usecurrent resources, raise labor productivity and adapt the production program to theneeds of the consumers. Small farms are unlikely to succeed on the marketconsidering the lack of both human and material resources. Their only chance isproduction intensification, competitive crop production and establishment ofassociations. The aim of the study was to develop models for different family farmtypes taking into account the constraints in order to enable an income which wouldmeet the needs of household members. A comparison of the models would enablethe determination of competitiveness of some production lines and of the farmsinvolved. This is of principal interest to regions where there are numerousproducers disposing of small agricultural land areas and focused on the productionof one or two products (raspberry or any other berry fruit, plums and tobacco).
