This paper should give us first view to diagnose the state of agro-industry, which is inevitably conditioned by certain historical choices, as well as a mission of Serbia's accession to the European Union. Keeping in mind serious social and economic changes that the country has faced in the last few decades, it leads to uregent need to create appropriate solutions for the efficient functioning of all market participants. Once recognized, the trends in the transformation of agriculture initiated by the transition of CEE, will help us to point out the countries that have implemented best practices that could be implemented in Serbia as well, with the aim of balanced and sustainable development. Special attention will be focused on the work potential of family farms- small producers in Serbia and possibilities of their association in cooperative production of organically grown foods, keeping permacultural aproaches and ethics as a leading idea, which could affect the (local and regional) development and migration to rural areas.
