This year’s edition Farm Aid, the annual all-day music festival to help keep family farmers in operation, will take place for the first time in America’s Dairyland- Wisconsin. Farm Aid 25: Growing Hope for America will be hosted at Miller Park in Milwaukee on October 2, 2010 and will feature some of the top music acts in the Country including Neil Young, Willie Nelson, Dave Matthews, John Mellencamp, Kenny Chesney, Norah Jones, Jason Mraz, Jeff Tweedy, and many more.
If the incredible Farm Aid 25 lineup wasn’t enough to draw you in, this festival will also feature ‘Homegrown’ local family farm concessions stands. In the Homegrown Village, concert goers can also participate in hands-on activities that give people a chance to meet farmers, get their hands dirty, and learn how family farmers are protecting our land and water and connecting us to our roots.
The mission of Farm Aid “ is to build a vibrant, family farm-centered system of agriculture in America.” Proceeds from Farm Aid 25 will go to support Farm Aid’s work with family farmers and to inspire people to choose family farm food. Since Farm Aid began in 1985 over $37 million dollars have been raised.
