Farm Aid, Willie Nelson. Photo credit: Paul NatkinFarm Aid has been around a while. Since 1985, in fact. Originally it was started by Willie Nelson, Neil Young, and John Mellencamp. In 2001, Dave Matthews joined in. Back in ’85, the money was raised with the purpose of helping save family farms. Farm Aid promotes sustainable agriculture, fights factory farms, advocates for fair farm prices, and provides credit counseling and direct assistance to farm families. Farm Aid also fights “factory farms” and “confronts genetic engineering in agriculture”. They are really trying to move us toward eating locally…and that’s a good thing.

The concert is all grown up and modern now with Silk Soymilk as their sponsor! The concert was held on Saturday, September 30 in New Jersey. Visit the Farm Aid website for lots more details, photos, and blogs.
