The aim of the paper is to determine the significance of high nature farming on creation and preservation of environmental public goods. For achieving the research aim the review of scientific studies on analysis of high nature value was done, the concept of high nature value systems was examined, the specifics of high nature farming systems and support measures were analysed, the effects of high nature farming were analysed, environmental public goods, according to the highest impact from agriculture on high nature value farming system were identified. Methods of systemic and logic analysis were applied for analysis of the concept of high nature value farming systems and determination of farming peculiarities in these systems.
