This study examines the integration of oil palm commodities and cattle to empower the farmers’ economy in East Aceh, Aceh Province, Indonesia. Even though, this paper only focuses on the empowerment process with the aim to discover an integration process of oil palm and cattle made by oil palm farmers. This study used a qualitative approach. Five farmers and one officer were involved as informants. The data were analyzed by interactive model through three stages; data reduction, data display and conclusion. This study carried out for six months. The results showed that the process of integration of oil palm and cattle is practiced by oil palm farmers without adequate knowledge. In addition, the integration also has done between cattle breeders and oil palm farmers. However, local authorities (Aceh Province and East Aceh)have not given the attention for this program to empower the farmers with education and training skill to integrate oil palm and cattle. Whereas such as this program is commonly practiced in Indonesia.
