During the last few years, farmer empowerment has been the main agenda of government programs to achieve the agricultural sector revitalization, which focuses more on human resources and farmer institutional development. Further, through the Minister of Agriculture, the government program with a target of establishing 350 farmer corporations by 2024 is a necessity if farmer groups are built with the support of the skilled and market-oriented. The assessment used a qualitative approach that focuses on data related to the assessment problem. Secondary data were obtained from various relevant literature to explore the correlationbetween empirical facts and government programs and regulations. The case study was conducted in October 2019 at Gapoktan Sidomulyo in Godean District, Yogyakarta Province. The results of the study showed that empirically, Gapoktan Sidomulyo is the advanced Farmer Group Association that successfully managed the farmer institution since it was supported by its history of formation and skilled human resources who were always market-oriented. On the other hand, the management of Gapoktan Sidomulyo still did not want to transform the Gapoktan into a legal business entity because it was considered more complicated and did not provide benefits.
