I’d like to introduce you to a few people who are near and dear to my heart. These people—young and old, rural and urban, farmers and activists—give me hope. When they joined me on stage at Farm Aid 30, I felt the impact of our work for family farmers over the past 30 years.
People like these are the reason that Farm Aid exists. Their work strengthens the future of family farm agriculture.
By supporting these farm heroes, you and I make sure family farmers like Corky stay on the land; amplify farmer voices so they can be heard by politicians and eaters; build a strong network of farm advocates like Mona Lee; make it possible for a new generation of young people like Rosario and Darius to become farmers; and stand with rural citizens like Patrick to stop factory farms from wiping out family farms and damaging rural communities.
Farm Aid’s work to strengthen family farmers sure benefits all of us. Family farmers put good food on our tables. They protect our soil and water. And they strengthen our communities. If we want good food, we need family farmers!Please, make a donation now and make a lasting impact in the lives of family farmer — and all of us.
