Twenty-five years after the first Farm Aid concert Willie Nelson is still going strong and continues to be a strong advocate of family farms and conservational agriculture; as he and several of his peers who joined him proved at the most recent Farm Aid concert this past week. Contrary to your typical rock concert, the Farm Aid concert goers concert experience includes an educational twist which provides them an opportunity to learn about and meet the very people their ticket money is going to benefit, family farmers. Even the concession stands at this year's concert featured foods from local farms. Since that inspirational Live Aid concert in 1985 where Bob Dylan uttered the words that started it all, "I hope some of this money goes to farmers", roughly fifty million has been raised to help family farms. Today it is more important than ever that we know where our food comes from, and become aware of the very real faces of our nation's farmers. These are real people, the very ones who provide the milk, and cheese in the dairy case, the meat at the meat counter, and the produce in the produce section of your local supermarket or grocery store.
