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.

Alec Baldwin wants turkey-less Thanksgiving, ignores other animals

No less turkeys would be saved if Baldwin and Farm Sanctuary asked people to go vegan.


If you only want a less-cruel turkey industry, you don’t give a shit about turkeys

There’s more than enough out their promoting the use of animals already- can’t animal rights activists agree to be the ones who say stop it and mean it?


Vandalism and aggression won’t help veganism

These acts of intimidation and aggression don’t change public perspective on veganism for the better, and that’s the only thing that will help animals.
