The aim of this paper is to compare the production and economic results of organic and conventional farms. The analyzed results show that organic farms record a far lower level of the production of grain, potatoes, oil plants, slaughter pigs and poultry than conventional farms but are characterized by a higher level of the production of vegetables, fruit and protein plants than the latter. Organic farms bear considerably lower production costs than conventional farms, which contributes to the achievement of similar economic results by the two groups of farms. Direct payments to the production activity of organic farms significantly increase the level of their incomes.
