Abstract

The paper is based on the finding that the successful transfer of farms to the younger generation is one of the basic conditions for ensuring social security for the elderly generation of farm population. Since young people are less and less interested for farm takeovers, in Slovenia this is mostly typical for mountain areas, the factors that affect farm succession were examined. It turned out that the most distinctive influence have factors reflecting the tradition or traditional way of thinking and acting, as well as the factors reflecting householders’ viewpoints, perceptions and opinions, and in particular the factors that reflect the economic power of a farm. Some proposals for rising of decisions among young people for farm takeovers, and thereby also for ensuring an adequate social security of former householders and their partners after the farm transfers are given in conclusion.
