Farm Aid 2020 Behind the Scenes Video Extras

by Jennifer Fahy

Farm Aid 2020 On the Road may be a virtual festival this year, but that doesn’t mean we can’t still offer some up close and personal interactions with artists and farmers alike!

Would you like a private tour of Brandi Carlile’s tomato garden and pepper greenhouse? Hurry up, your all-terrain transportation is leaving now.

Would you like to talk with farmers in the FarmYard about their experience during the COVID-19 pandemic? Let us introduce you to regenerative farmer and rancher Cheri Hood from Texas.

And here’s Dr. Mike Kotutwa Johnson (Hopi), an Indigenous farmer in the Southwest, who has deep roots in agriculture and a vision for the future.

Please meet Ayanna Jones of Sankofa Village Community Garden, who shares some surprising upsides to the pandemic, including the fact that it made healthy, fresh food MORE available to the members of her community in the Homewood neighborhood of Pittsburgh, PA.

Chris Vos of The Record Company demonstrates the kind of deep connection to agriculture that leads many Farm Aid artists to donate their time and talent to the mission to keep family farmers on the land. Get to know him and hear stories about his grandfather, a dairy farmer like Chris’s dad, who has a dairy farm in Wisconsin.

Want to know what it’s like to be a farmer coming to Farm Aid for the first time? Let Louisiana farmers June and Angie Provost share their experience with you!

Curious about Chris Stapleton’s connection to agriculture (and what books he’s reading right now)?
