Farm Aid’s annual festival serves as a platform to raise awareness about the challenges faced by family farmers and the importance of supporting sustainable farming practices.
Willie Nelson summarized the organization’s mission by stating, “Family farmers have the solutions to some of our toughest challenges. As we face a changing climate, farmers in Indiana, across the Midwest, and all over the country are farming in ways that create more resilient farms to build healthy soils and protect our water.” With Farm Aid 2023, the organization aims to further promote and celebrate these vital contributions.
