A framework of study is presented and overall characteristics of surveyed farms are outlined. Assessment is made on integral, governance, economic, social, and environmental sustainability of farms as a whole, and of different size, production specialization, and ecological and geographical location. Factors for improving sustainability of farms are identified, and directions for further research and amelioration of assessment practices in the sector are suggested.
