The research aim of the paper is to provide assessment of the influence of actions of advisors employed in the District Advisory Team (DAT) in Klodzko on selected developmental factors affecting farms located in the Klodzki District. Moreover, the farmers were surveyed for their satisfaction with advisory services they were provided with. A diagnostic poll method was used for the survey. The results have revealed that the surveyed farmers were mostly interested in services in the field of new European Union regulations and entrepreneurship development, as well as assistance in completion of applications for direct payments and support within the RDP (Rural Development Programme). The respondents' satisfaction with services provided by the analysed advisory centre was most often found to be at satisfactory level.
