The rural areas are a place of living and work of much of the society and agricultural production is essential for the Polish national economy. The aim of this paper has been to determine the prospects for the development of agricultural family farms. With that in mind, an important aspect has been to diagnose the opinions of the farmers on the key sources of income, benefiting from the CAP support, the recent investment projects completed, opinions on changes in the operation of agriculture after the integration with the EU, its impact on the development potential of the farms under study as well as plans for the farms. The research material was acquired from the surveys made in 2018 which included 60 respondents residing in the Zlawies Wielka commune. The survey research has demonstrated that a great majority of the respondents were living mostly from agricultural production, only some used other support than direct payments. Less than half of the respondents were making efforts to develop their farms through the investments made over the recent years. The farmers planned handing over the farm to their successors or continuing the work themselves.
