Farmer-to-Farmer is a USAID-funded initiative to send American agricultural/agribusiness experts to developing countries to offer technical assistance to our host organizations. These trips are volunteer-based, but all trip-related expenses are covered by CNFA, and typically last between two and three weeks.
Quinta Bazima is a dairy farm located near Beira, Mozambique. The owners, Sansão Bazima and Maria Bazima, manage 30 acres of land where they graze their cattle and take care of 28 dairy cows. The owners plan to increase the production of milk and request the assistance of a Farmer-to-Farmer volunteer to create a strategic business plan for Quinta Bazima to increase production capacity through improvements in infrastructure, the acquisition of additional dairy cows and investments in new machinery such for feed processing and milk conservation.
