Willie, Neil, John, and Dave want fair markets for farmers and ranchers. Do you?
Willie Nelson, Neil Young, John Mellencamp and Dave Matthews come together every year to perform on the same stage for family farmers. Now they've come together to demand fair markets for farmers and ranchers. You can join them.
Agriculture in the U.S. suffers from increasingly high levels of corporate concentration, a trend that has forced hundreds of thousands of independent family farmers off the land.
In 2010, the U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ) and U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) jointly launched a series of workshops to look at these issues. Family farmers came out in droves to speak out against corporations' virtual chokehold over food production and distribution in America. Over a year has passed since the last workshop, and neither the DOJ nor the USDA has offered any plan for next steps.
Farm Aid's board artists sent a letter to Attorney General Eric Holder and Secretary of Agriculture Tom Vilsack asking them to ensure fair and competitive agricultural markets.
