What We Do
We support farmers and agribusiness professionals in developing countries to improve their livelihoods and food security. Farmer-to-Farmer sends volunteers from the U.S. on need-based assignments to provide hands-on training and mentorship to communities, cooperatives, agribusinesses, and educational institutions.
Why We Do It
Too often, farmers in the developing world are cut off from the agricultural technologies and innovations that could help them improve their productivity and competitiveness. Farmers have the proven strength and resilience to lift their families and their communities out of poverty, but they need access to the best practices available. Farmer-to-Farmer is designed to help bridge this gap - we send highly-skilled volunteer consultants who can help smallholder farmers access the tools and information they need to thrive.
You can make a difference by sharing your knowledge and skills with farmers, cooperatives, agribusinesses, and other agriculture sector institutions in developing countries.
Recruited from all 50 states and the District of Columbia, Farmer-to-Farmer volunteers come from diverse backgrounds in the public and private sectors.
