Romania has a relatively new history of the organic market, but increase the number of operators registered in the system is a spectacular one. Currently Romanian agriculture is going through a long and difficult transition from centralized economy to the European economy. In these conditions, organic agriculture is an opportunity for the rural population to increase their standard of living, which is far behind the European economy while respecting "sustainable development" by: environmental protection, natural resource conservation, preservation and promotion of cultural values in these areas, keeping the population in rural areas by removing the population exodus, diversification and promotion of occupational opportunities, in order to reduce unemployment in rural areas. This paper aimed to analyze the application of the concept of sustainability in agriculture by organic farming in Sibiu County, a central region of Romania, where it is the largest producer organic in the country, where organic agriculture is applied in the half of village number in the county and where most organic operators are grouped in a core (Vurpar). Methods used followed the knowing awareness among organic operators about benefits of organic farming about human health and environment. The main conclusion of this study is that the operators are aware of benefits and they must look for corresponding methods for products development recovery by getting value added.
