This study aimed to explain the peasant movement, village transformation, and welfare structure in villages that implement agrarian reform. This study applied qualitative naturalistic methods in addition to using a sociological juridical approach (socio-legal). This approach is a combination of legal and social research to understand the relationship between legal aspects and reality in society. The subjects were the Agrarian Reform Consortium (KPA) and the Kulonbambang Farmers Community Association (PAWARTAKU) in Blitar Regency, Indonesia. The results showed that the peasant movement in implementing agrarian reform was carried out through initiatives and participatory farmers in organizations, which were motivated by the struggle to obtain land rights through power management, land management, and agricultural production. The transformation of the village on the concept of agrarian reform is carried out through establishing the peasants‘ awareness in implementing agricultural reform, assets and access reform in sustaining the productive agricultural efforts and economic institutions oriented to the progress of farmers' lives in the countryside. 3) Structuring farmers' welfare through the development of financial institutions in the form of Credit Union Gerakan (CUG) in fulfilling basic needs, sustainability needs, social needs, and spiritual needs. The increase in farmers' incomes shows the impact of the CUG on improving farmers 'welfare. The children of farmers going to school, the construction of farmhouses, road self-sufficiency, and farming business development were additional proof. In the concept of agrarian reform, all production units integrate so that the village can independently manage the force of attorney, use, and production of governance.
