Meet Our Farmer Heroes
Over the past 15 years, Farm Aid has highlighted the work of more than 150 Farmer Heroes all over the country. They have shown us everything from how their practices protect our soil and water while slowing climate change, to how they grow local economies and strengthen their communities. We've featured everyone from a farmer growing vegetables on Chicago rooftops, to Iowa farmers organizing against factory farms and a North Carolina poultry farmer fighting corporate power. Their innovative approaches to growing and raising good food inspire us as we build a vibrant, family farm-centered system of agriculture in America.
