In Indonesia, Ngadas Village is one of the Agricultural Villages. Ngadas people do more activities in the fields than in their homes or dwellings. So, research about local wisdom of the Ngadas community in managing an agricultural landscape was fascinating. This research aimed to provide an overview of the initiative, creativity, work of the Ngadas community through artifacts in the agricultural landscape in Ngadas Village. The research was conducted through a qualitative approach. As a result, Tenggerese people have their way of survival. They are processing their crops by planting cover crops that function for animal feed. Nevertheless, ecologically, it has a significant impact on reducing erosion and eroding nutrients. Also, cover crops such as rumput gajah function as physical boundaries and form their field territory. Farmers in Ngadas also build farmhouses as a form of sustainable agriculture by making potato seeds from the harvest. Aside from being a potato seed storage, farmhouses are also a place to rest without leaving their cultural aspects, namely gegenen. Gegenen is an activity to make a body warms itself by burning charcoal when the weather is very cold. So it can be concluded that the local wisdom of the Ngadas community in managing their agricultural landscape is a form of adaptation from their environment.
