Food Estate is a government program with the concept of integrated food production development covering agriculture, plantation and animal husbandry located in a large land area. In simple terms the concept of Food Estate like a food industry villages. In running this program required a large capital, so the government opens opportunities for investment locations for the private sector to achieve efficiency, effectiveness and added value of the products that produced. The presence of a wave of private investment in the food estate program was not able to raise the welfare of the tenant farmers. Agricultural land tenure by investors makes the farmers only as laborers. So, the investors are who get benefits in this food estate program. To overcome this problem, it is necessary to look for other capital alternative. By using library research, in this study, cash waqf can be used as the capital alternative. Through cash waqf, assets of waqf in the form of empty lands can be used to be processed into agricultural land. Cash waqf can also be in the form of productive loans for farmers and agricultural investment. The large potential of cash waqf in Indonesia is expected to replace the role of private investors.
