We first introduce the methods employed in our research and provide a general description of the farms included in it. Then we assess the integral, managerial, economic, social and environmental sustainability of farms in general as well as that of the different types of farms according to their size, specialization of production, environmental position and geographical location. Finally, we assess the factors for improving the sustainability of farms and present our conclusions about doing further research work and improving the assessment practice in the sector.
