The aim of this study was to show the changes that occurred in the group of large-scale farms functioning in a form of agricultural production cooperatives (APC) in 2011-2013. Due to little availability of information concerning this form of farms in Poland, the data for the analysis were gathered from the database of the Institute of Agricultural and Food Economics National Research Institute. This database was created in connection with the annual publication of Top 100 RSP. The analyses show that the surveyed group of cooperatives in 2013 reached the worse financial ratios than in previous years. However, this did not result in discontinuation of investment and modernization in these farms.
