The purpose of this article is to analyze the development of organic farming in Bulgaria. An important feature of all practices and activities to be implemented in the application of organic production is their scientific justification and the need to know the basic principles of organization. In recent years, organic production has increased in all EU Member States. Bulgaria is one of the countries with the highest pace of development and this is a prerequisite for the country to seek an opportunity to realize itself in this big market niche.
