Giving thanks

MattThis Thanksgiving, all of us at Farm Aid are grateful for the bounty of the soil, and the family farmers who tend it.

We’re thankful to the artists who donated their performances at Farm Aid 2014, bringing together a sold-out crowd of 20,000 people to celebrate family farmers in North Carolina.

We give thanks for family farmers, who inspire us each and every day with their dedication, hard work and ingenuity. And to the organizations we partner with all over the country, whose ideas and determination energize us.

And we’re grateful for you. For sharing our vision of 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 grows stronger, with more people sharing good food from family farms at tables from coast to coast.

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