This creative farmer group is tasked with setting an example and protecting the farmers of Sumberjo Village so that they can continue to increase their income and manage their agricultural products. The problems faced by the farmer groups are the absence of final product innovations in the context of anticipating a plummeting selling price and poor yield of red onion, low knowledge and skills of the farmer groups in the application of appropriate technology. In this public service program it produces an onion processing machine, one of which is discussed in this paper is the onion peeler machine.
