This paper represents an analysis of the way in which the organic farming has evolved in the EU member states, focusing on the crop production. The analysed period is 2000-2011, years for which a full set of data was found. Data regarding the following have been analysed and interpreted: organically farmed areas, number of farms, number of the manufacturers in the system and the main utilization categories for the organically farmed lands. The conclusions reinforce the idea that, in an era when the society is increasingly concerned with the health of its members and of the environment, the organic farming has gathered pace in the last years having an extremely dynamical evolution in Europe and not only.
