Research revolves around the question, how family farms resolve the contradictions stemming from the preservation of family tradition on the one hand and the desire of individual for self-fulfilment on the other hand. The study focuses on the context of the family which supports or hinders a transfer of a farm from the older to the younger generation. In this regard, the survey seeks to establish a profile of the addressees of the measures of setting up of young farmers and early retirement.
