The purpose of this paper is to investigate the impact of entrepreneurial orientation on the farmer’s performance in Bushehr province, Iran. This study follows a quantitative research design using survey methods with statistical treatment. The data was collected from a survey of a group of farmers in Bushehr province. The entrepreneurial orientation questionnaire distinguishes three sub-dimensions - innovativeness, proactiveness and risk-taking. Six items were used to measure the performance indicators. They are: growth in sales, growth in profits, growth in employment, overall performance, additional facilities and offices. Results show that farmers with higher entrepreneurial orientation achieved higher performance.
