The research was carried out to determine the training as a research object for competitiveness theories, analyze the impact of these interventions on farms’ competitiveness and its reflection in indicators that farms’ competitiveness is described with. The study was based on the counterfactual impact evaluation method, scientific literature as well as data from year 2008 and 2012 Lithuanian government’s interventional farmers training, linked with respondent’s data provided by Farm Accountancy Data Network. During the research, eligibility for counterfactual impact evaluation method was confirmed, similarity criteria of farms were developed, according to these criteria, nearest neighbor matching performed and impact detected. The study shows that informal professional training of farmers as a government intervention affects competitiveness of family farms and how these effects can be measured. It was found that the farmers that participated in this training achieved higher productivity and thus increased their farms’ competitiveness. The findings of this study contribute to the discussion on the importance of the public support for the farms’ competitiveness. Informal professional training can be a governmental instrument to foster farms’ competitiveness development
