Abstract: Albanian agriculture is characterised by small and fragmented farms issued from a radical de collectivisation process in the 1990s. After twenty years the Albanian farm structure has not changed a lot. Farms are still small and they should offer for a larger number of work forces compared with their real demand. This paper aims to identify the most productive farming households in Albania and those who provide higher incomes for their members. The paper uses a new farm level database in order to identify a representative farming household typology and to draw conclusions about the productivity of each farm-household type. Average farm type work and land productivity as well as extreme and complete poverty lines are considered as the main indicators to depict the agriculture's possibilities to provide enough incomes for rural households.
