      Food is a commodity which is very strategic in fulfilling food need. The problem is farmers who are the main agents have not gained welfare as it is expected. Lamongan Regency as the first awardee of Anugerah Pangan Nusantara in 2013, got the from food barn. It plays important roles such as being able to overcome the availability of food for society especially in time of scarcity before harvest, being able to overcome economic problem for farmers called “system ijon” which can be decreased because of the role of micro finance from food barn. Food barn, besides main functioning as the place for food distributor for society, it also functions as financial institution for villages. It proves that it can prevent farmers from renters, guarantees the exact time planting and techniques for cultivation, and even empowers the economy of farmer household. Based on rice management and other foods it is still possible for vertical and horizontal integration to make farmer welfare through building cluster in backward linkage and forward linkage, such as industrial processing and distributions. The critical success factors of food security and the welfare of economy farmer household are the availability of seeds, the use of organic fertilizer and pesticides, the output price, and the commitment of local leaders on food barn. The model of guidance in food barn starts from backward linkage, farmer as primasy producers, processing, and fair market in the supporting system which are based on business values and principles of agribusiness complex, whole farm approach, zero waste principles, and empowerment of institutions (social engineering). Keywords: food barn, micro-finance, agribusiness complex, social-engineering
