Farmer-to-Farmer 30th Anniversary Blog Series

Blog series logo

Over the next four weeks, Farmer to Farmer program partners are sharing their knowledge and experience providing technical assistance to farmers, farm groups, agribusinesses, service providers, and other agriculture sector institutions in developing and transitional countries.

As aligned with Feed the Future, the U.S. Government's global hunger and food security initiative, Farmer to Farmer works to support inclusive agriculture sector growth, facilitate private sector engagement in the agriculture sector, enhance development of local capacity and promote climate-smart development. Volunteer assignments address host-led priorities to expand economic growth that increases incomes and improves access to nutritious food. This blog series aims to capture and share this program experience.
