In the scientific literature, we are always met with the concept of a village which describes simplicity, equality and awareness that is formed with such strong ties, but the phenomenon of the village community Ngringo can change the description of the village when it is touched by industrial or commercial settlements. The portrait of a village with limited agricultural land makes it difficult for people who previously worked as farmers and farm labourers to access jobs that they have been working on for a long time, especially for a group of people whose expertise is only farming. This research is a qualitative study which aims to describe the processes and impacts of land-use change that occurred in the village of Ngringo. The research is focused on the activities of informants in Ngringo village. Data analysis used the idea of ​​Miles and Huberman where qualitative data analysis was carried out interactively and continuously. The results showed that; the process of changing the function of agricultural land is caused by the need for land for the construction of public and commercial settlements as well as industrial development and economic facilities, which causes land prices to be expensive and encourages landowners and farmers to sell land to developers. The price is increasingly expensive to attract landowners to sell, which part of the sale will be used as capital to buy land or as other business capital.
