as long as the land is not over 50,000 m2 and zoned for agriculture you will be fine, once you have the plot you intend to buy contact a notary (notariusz) and they will run through the legalities for you.

I thought its was 4000m2 maximum.

50,000m2 is 10ha, 25acres which is a substantial farm.

Your girlfriend can own farmland, however. Also, you can apply for a permit for farm land as an EU citizen which will slow the process down but given the slow market should not make any difference.

In 2016 buying farmland in Poland will be open to all EU citizens.

So, Larry, you should not have any problem as its well below the area limit.

Which is ridiculous, really. The proliferation of tiny farms in Poland is a joke.

Oops.

The proliferation of tiny farms in Poland is a joke.

Is it really? In other countries (UK etc) farms were forcibly collectivised, whereas Poles have access to food outside of industralised food production.

Sure, Poland could export more food if it had bigger farms, but I think Poles are attached to land and farming. Its almost impossible to buy a farm in the UK, you need a £million.

On the other hand, bigger farms would increase its exports by 100's of billions of Euro's per year. I suspect that farms will get bigger, all my neighbours are elderly and their children don't want to farm.

1 hectare is 10,000 m2, an acre is 4046 m2.
