Meaningful and impactful sustainability is hard. In order to be successful over the long term, sustainability efforts must balance the economic well-being of the family farm and the health of our shared environment. True change and improvement can only happen acre-by-acre and farmer-by-farmer. We have to start small.
That’s where Land O’Lakes SUSTAIN comes in. SUSTAIN is a partnership between farmers, companies and Land O’Lakes that aligns and harmonizes on-farm conservation and company-led sustainability targets to maximize the positive impact we can have on the environment, in our communities and for our customers. LOL SUSTAIN is farmer-focused and farmer-driven, empowering farmers to make sustainable and productive decisions on-farm.
Farm-by-farm, acre-by-acre, season-after-season—we believe in our power to change and feed the planet.
