The aim of the paper was to identify different levels of social sustainability in farms of various economic sizes (6 sizes) in the EU countries. The study is based on the Sustainable Value (SV) method, which is valueoriented, measured as the sustainability of agriculture at the micro-economic level (e.g. agricultural farm). To be able to compare farms among themselves, an RTC was calculated. The FADN database for the years 2004–2015 was used in the article, analysing very small (I) and very large (VI) farms more closely. It identifies countries, where farms made a positive contribution to social sustainability and those, compared to the EU average, which need mainly institutional support in order to bridge the gap with the best.
