Willie Nelson, America’s favorite stoner and his crew of do-gooders, including Neil Young, John Mellencamp and Dave Matthews, will be back on stage together again in Milwaukee on October 2nd for Farm Aid 25.
Farmers Still Going Out Of Business
Amazing isn’t it? Twenty-five years have passed and we still haven’t figured out how to return family farms back to a healthy industry. In fact, family farming is in greater financial peril than ever, thanks to draconian deals major food manufacturers are allowed to make with small farmers. They leave them the option of going out of business or remaining in what is the 21st century equivalent of indentured servitude.
Go See A Good Show
Musically, this year’s show should be as good as ever. Allowed with the aforementioned names, Farm Aid 25 will include Kenny Chesney, Norah Jones, Jason Mraz, Jeff Tweedy, Band of Horses, the BoDeans, Amos Lee and Robert Francis.
Since its launch in 1985, Farm Aid has raised $37 million to support American farmers yet family farms still remain in financial peril.
