Farmer-to-Farmer Program Overview

The Partners of the Americas Farmer-to-Farmer Program provides technical assistance to local agricultural producers, producer organizations, and agribusinesses throughout the region. Through the program, U.S. agricultural volunteers share their knowledge on an individual basis to help increase farm production and farmer incomes while preserving the natural resource base.

The John Ogonowski and Doug Bereuter Farmer-to-Farmer (F2F) Program is funded by the United States Agency for International Development (USAID). U.S. volunteers participating in Farmer-to-Farmer spend two to four weeks on assignment working directly with local counterparts in Latin America and the Caribbean to address previously identified local needs. Technical assistance is focused on agricultural commodity chains, from field to market, addressing bottlenecks wherever they are identified. The program targets small and medium scale producers, producer organizations and related enterprises, and emphasizes women and minority participation.

The current program is working primarily in Nicaragua, Haiti, Guatemala, and the Dominican Republic, as well as in other countries throughout the hemisphere (F2F Flex opportunities).  Find out more about how to Volunteer and check out the links to the right to read newsletters and success stories, see photos and find out more about the program.
