The major aim of the study was to analyse the basic production and economic characteristics of olive production on family farms, so as to get an insight into their economic situation and development perspectives. The following methods were used in the study: survey, standard methods of descriptive statistics and the SWOT analysis. A survey was conducted in the area of Dalmatia where there are 80% of production and processing capacities of Croatian olive production. The family farms surveyed have 121 olive trees on average, usually in three (3) separate lots, using predominantly extensive cultivation method. Most of the olive growers’ economic situation is relatively satisfactory. The results of the SWOT analysis show that the strategic development activities should attempt to make the most of the increased interest in olive groves establishment and regeneration, along with the more favourable terms of support and funding to decrease the prevalent domination of the extensive method of olive cultivation in respect to the yield oscillation and dependence on imports, avoiding threats of the global institutionalization and market pressures.
