This paper presents the ways by which households and individuals construct everyday livelihoods and negotiate forms of poverty in the rural areas in Slovakia. Based on the recent research the agricultural strategies adopted by households and individuals were examined. We attempt to embrace the ways how they link informal and formal economic activities, and how they are constituted differently within households in post-socialist environment. In the research we have used a multi-methods approach, and in this paper, the results from semi-structured interviews are presented. Our theoretical concept is based on a Burawoy’s theory of the four different categories of assets: material, skill, social and citizenship assets. In our question research we have focused at more details considering the use of land and gardens, as an important part of material assets. These are the sources of wider household production. They generate domestic products which can be in consequently an important part of everyday livelihood of household as well as a source of exchange and redistribution among networks of relatives and friends
