Abstract: This article is intended to analyse the ageing issue in agricultural sector as a significant factor influencing the future of development of rural areas and agricultural activity. The main focus is placed on the fact that farmers’ rotation involves a certain age conflict. Current situation in agriculture shows that young generation is not willing to be workers in agricultural sector, while elderly farmers, due to their age, are retiring or quitting this activity. Slow change of gene-rations in agriculture, difficult engagement and maintenance of youth in agriculture as well as increasing number of elderly farmers reveal that this age conflict between different generations determines intergenerational tension which has emerged in agricultural sector of the European Union in the recent decade. Analysis of the secondary data in the selected countries highlights the deepening and developing issue of farmers’ ageing. The authors consider that the local and national authorities are responsible for the society welfare issues and should further encourage socially innovative solutions by finding unconventional ideas for obtaining multidimensional support, including assistance provided by po-licy-makers and involving local agents to enhance inclusion of the aged and young population in the labour market and creation of local food systems
