The research aims to analyze: 1) farmers’ understanding on organic agriculture and 2) the readiness of organic farmers in the era of industrial revolution 4.0 in Salassae Village Bulukumba Regency. The research uses constructivist paradigm with qualitative approach. Data collection is conducted using in-depth interview; observation; focused group discussion (FGD); and documentation methods. Data analysis is done through data reduction process; data presentation; and conclusion drawing. Data validity checks are carried out in four ways; i.e.: credibility level; dependency; transferability; and confirmability. The research results indicate that organic rice farmers understand organic agriculture methods from land cultivation; seedling selection; plant maintenance; organic fertilizers utilization; and product packaging. The farmers understand the main principles of organic agriculture; such as the principles of health; ecology; justice; and protection. Organic rice farmers are not ready to enter the industrial revolution 4.0 in agricultural field. The symptom is indicated by internet; robotization; and big data that are not being used in organic agricultural activities
