Abstract

The aim of this article is to identify and assess the degree and conditionings of the phenomenon of subsidizing farms from the income obtained by farmers from their non-agricultural economic activity. The empirical material of the article are the results of the survey conducted in 2011-2012, i.e. the questionnaire interview with 210 farmers, owners of individual farms, additionally engaged in non-agricultural economic activity, from the area of south-east Poland, i.e. from three voivodships: Świętokrzyskie, Małopolskie and Podkarpackie. The analysis of the research results shows that the processes associated with running a farm, which are important from the farmers' point of view, are supported financially from the income obtained by them from non-agricultural economic activity, as evidenced by statistically significant and positive parameters of logistic regression of the models presented in the article, in almost all the analyzed cases.
