For selected regions of five EU Member States (Bulgaria, Hungary, Poland, Romania \ud and Slovenia), this paper examines the determinants of the commercialisation of \ud (semi)subsistence farms. While subsistence farming has become an important feature of \ud the EU, there is a lack of evidence on its spatial distribution, importance and reasons for \ud persistence. The analysis utilises cross-regional survey data and qualitative interviews. \ud Results suggest the absence of a subsistence poverty trap driven by either farmer \ud perceptions or transactions costs although capital endowment appears to play a \ud significant part. On the other hand the degree of market engagement depends on access \ud costs, which vary with location, households’ productive assets, specialisation, and risk \ud propensity. Implications for land use policy are discussed.
