The analysis technique applied was descriptive and quantitative, using Cobb Douglass stochastic frontier production function. The result of the research visualizes that organic rice possesses higher level of income and profit than non-organic rice does. Financially, organic rice is feasible for further development with R/C value reaching 1.81 (>1). Furthermore, technically, organic rice shows promising efficiency with efficiency index reaching > 0.7.
