The article focuses on the preconditions behind the global incidence of organic farming and the external factors contributing to its development It assesses the significance of external factors in choosing/pursuing organic production business and offers tools stipulated by the external environment that add to the Lithuanian farmers' motivation for organic farming. The motives that inspire the farmers' decision to take up organic farming include higher product prices and compensations; aspirations to engage in nature-friendly farming, healthy diet and healthy lifestyle, established organic product processing and wholesale systems and trading infrastructure; growing demand in products. Those factors can be divided into internal and external. A quantitative research method, a questionnaire survey, was elected for estimating the impact of external factors on farmers' motivation. The article introduces the research object which includes two external factors considered to be the most important by scientists, i.e. direct aid to the organic production farms and the organic product market conditions. The questionnaire survey was performed in summer 2009. After some of the questionnaires were rejected due to a poor quality of completion, the article reveals and analyses the answers of 324 respondents. The research found that ca 90 percent of the respondents recognize the direct aid provided to organic production farms as an important or very important factor in choosing/pursuing organic farming
