Background: Social health is defined as the individual’s ability to effectively and efficiently play the social roles without hurting other people; in fact, it is the examination of individual’s activities and status in society. Saffron cultivation, given its special properties such as team working, cooperation, and social correlation, plays a major role in social health. Thus the current study aims to compare the social health components among the farmers in saffron villages and the others in South Khorasan Province.  
Method: The current study is applied and comparative. The statistical population includes the farmers in saffron villages and the others in South Khorasan Province in 2018. The sample consists of 550 farmers (275 producing saffron and 275 producing other plants) based on Cochran formula; they were selected through multistage sampling. The tool used to collect the data was the Keyes's standard Social Well-being Questionnaire (2004), consisting of 28 questions. After collecting the questionnaires, the data was analyzed using SPSS 23 and independent t-test at a significance level of p < 0.05.
Result:  There was a significant difference between the villagers planting saffron and the others in regard to their social health levels (p< 0.000). The obtained t-value for social health, that is the dependent variable, was 15.47. The obtained t-value for all the aspects of social health was higher than the acceptable t-value in the significance level (p<0.05).
Conclusion: The results showed that saffron villages had higher social solidarity, compared to the others. Since cooperation and collaboration are necessary in different stages of saffron production, social cohesion is naturally reinforced.
