ABSTRACT

In the rapid city-centered development, the income differential between cities and rural areas has been worsened, and the
economy over agricultural regions is in the moment of crisis. As means to address such income problems, there have been a
number of policies and supporting measures developed one after another in various areas, and one of them is the research on ‘the
sixth industry.’ Accordingly, this study aims to help understand the sixth industry and farm design and to suggest ways for
successful farm design based on investigation and analysis of elements of the sixth industry. First of all, some representative
exemplary cases were selected among those introduced by the Ministry of Agriculture, Food, and Rural Affairs, and key
elements were extracted based on case studies on the sixth industry. As a result of the analysis, it turned out that exemplary cases
in the sixth industry focused on businesses related to 'experience,' especially in connection with visual images of the local
community.
