Abstract: Preserving knowledge in an organization is essential to increase productivity, resulting in competitiveness. Knowledge management can be implemented in many industries, including vegetable farming. This research aims to assess the knowledge management maturity level at PT. Organic Farm. A combination of quantitative and qualitative methods will be used to complement the research. The quantitative study is done by conducting a survey based on the APO Knowledge Management Framework and distributed to 13 respondents in the production team. Focus group discussions and interview with the leaders represent the qualitative study. The result shows that the company is still at the initiation level with a total APO KM Maturity score of 115,9. The highest score is obtained in the outcomes category with a total score of 20,7. However, the knowledge process received the lowest score of 13,2. The company has started to implement informal sharing but lacks knowledge of externalization and codification. Additionally, employee training is done coincidentally, depending on the leader's availability. Thus, creating a portal as knowledge storage, providing systematic training, and performance-based rewards may enhance knowledge management implementation in the company.
