The maximum and minimum areas of organic farming in municipalities as well as their change were determined for the detailed analysis. Comparative, analytical as well as statistical and logical analysis methods were used for the investigation. The aim of the investigation – to analyse the number of organic farms and the change in their occupied areas and to identify the reasons. The object of the investigation – Lithuanian organic farms.

Within the period from 2010 to 2014, the area of organic farming in Lithuania increased by 20481.65 hectares or by 12,45 percent.
