ABSTRACT
Objectives:
The main aim of the article is to recognize the accumulation of assets in agricultural holdings in Poland due to the main type of farming. In addition, the context of the sustainable farm paradigm was taken into account.

Material and methods:
I used the data of agricultural holdings conducting agricultural accounting in accordance with the principles of the FADN system. The analysis was made taking into account the type of farming (TF8) selecting for evaluation the most common types in Poland: field crops, dairy cows, grazing livestock, farms specialized in granivores (pigs, poultry) and agricultural holdings with mixed production.

Results:
There is a wide range of differentiation between types of farms in terms of accumulation and its rate. The most favorable situation in this respect took place in farms specialized in “granivores“ (it is mainly about poultry farms) and milk production. The level of accumulation (per 1 ha) and its rate increased with the growth in the economic size of agricultural holdings in selected production types. Higher accumulation is accompanied by an increase in economic sustainable for the surveyed groups of farms.

Conclusions:
The higher accumulation was accompanied by stronger pressure on the environment. It can be stated that the accumulation processes of fixed assets, as well as the relationships between accumulation and income (from the perspective of the accumulation rate) in farms only partially (in the economic order), favor development in the paradigm of sustainable development
