INTRODUCTION: The Spanish goat sector's crisis has led to the abandonment of a large number of farms. At present, sector's expectations are reduced, which threatens farms' permanence. This in turn means a loss of agricultural biodiversity, reduced economic activity and loss of rural population. In this context, it is necessary to implement strategies to ensure farms' continuity . In this sense, the conversion to the organic model is proposed in the farms analyzed.
METHODOLOGY: To study the possibility and feasibility of such conversion an analysis of their structure (technical and economic characteristics), an assessment of farms' sustainability (based on social, economic and environmental parameters) has been carried out. For this purpose, the MESMIS Framework was used.
