Rural livelihoods, especially in the peasant community, have complex issues, ranging from land tenure, the means of production, waste pollution and management, production capacity, degradation of land, water and irrigation, information of technology, and marketing constraints of agricultural products. Therefore, it is necessary to create community development planning to determine the priority of the AT that is required. This paper will describe the steps of community development planning to introduce the Integrated Farming System (IFS) to the rural community. The setting and case study is the business development group of cattle and rice farmers in Sukatani Village, Subang, West Java, which is expected to be a pioneer of IFS within communities.
