Since 1987, Land O’Lakes International Development has fielded volunteers who are U.S. citizens and green card holders to 27 countries via The John Ogonowski and Doug Bereuter Farmer-to-Farmer (F2F) Program. Volunteers complete short-term assignments to address the needs of agribusinesses, farmers and support organizations. Our most recent batch of volunteers returned from Egypt. Meet a few of them.
