When people drive by a farm, what do they think about? The family who lives there? The food they produce? Sue Hess of Hessdale Farm in Pennsylvania wonders about this a lot. That’s what inspired her to partner with her local school district to help students get to know her family’s farm, through their lunch menu staples.
Sticking with it
Larry Dufek emerged from personal adversity ready to improve his farm and deepen his relationship with Land O'Lakes.
By Amelia Barr (1831-1919)
The king may rule o’er land and sea,
The lord may live right royally,
The soldier ride in pomp and pride,
The sailor roam o’er ocean wide;
But this or that, whate’er befall,
The farmer he must feed them all.

Something Greater podcast: Rural broadband
Americans in rural areas know the lack of high-speed internet (commonly known as broadband) is a major problem. Having that access is no longer a luxury. It plays a role in outcomes across healthcare, education, job creation and culture. it’s a necessity for work -- and overall quality of life.
While the country continues to face uncertainty, Land O’Lakes member-owners work tirelessly to ensure the food supply chain remains strong, whether at home, at school or at the restaurants that have faced challenges in 2020. This is a continuation of our commitment that puts our members front-and-center for our consumers.
