It is the predominant mode of agricultural production in the world. Despite its predominance in the agricultural structure, small farming encounters several difficulties. Therefore, it is hard to imagine functioning of small farms without subsidies for production, especially direct area payments. The aim of the paper is to identify the development trend of small farmers in Slovakia and to point out their needs in the Slovak agricultural business environment.
