New Video: Hearing from Farmers at Farm Aid

This past weekend, Mark and I had the pleasure of attending Farm Aid 2009 in St. Louis, Missouri. The concert is a massive fundraiser that aims to help struggling family farmers stay on their land and features music by Willie Nelson, Neil Young, John Mellencamp and Dave Matthews.

At the concert, I got a chance to talk with farmers attending the event about the importance of family farms, educating the public about healthy food and which musician they like the best!

    Thanks for standing up for the family farm against corporate giants. As a dairy farm family we are victims of Kraft food manipulating the CME cheese market and has the entire dairy industry in a financial crisis.
