Giving thanks for you

JenniferThis Thanksgiving, all of us at Farm Aid are extremely grateful.

We’re thankful to the artists who donated their performances at Farm Aid 2013, bringing together more than 25,000 people to celebrate family farmers.

We give thanks for family farmers, who inspire us each and every day with their dedication, hard work and ingenuity.

We appreciate our family farm organization partners, who inspire us with their ideas and determination to keep pushing for change, in spite of the forces we’re up against.

And we’re grateful for YOU… for sharing our vision for family farmers and eaters together, transforming our world. You bring us stories of the farmers that inspire you, ask questions about your food, and spring into action when your voice can make a difference. Thank you for spreading the word that family farmers are essential for a good future for all of us.

Willie Nelson, Neil Young, John Mellencamp and Dave Matthews know that the work to keep family farmers on the land and change our food system is going to take each and every one of us. Every day, this movement for good food from family farmers grows stronger, with more people sharing good food from family farms at tables from coast to coast. Together we reflect on the past year and gather our strength for the road ahead. We’re thankful to be on this road with you.

We wish you a Happy Thanksgiving and good food from family farmers.
