The other day I got an email from a member of the Farm Aid team, saying nice things about my blog, which was a great way to butter me up for plugging their photo contest, Farm Fresh Pics. I would have said yes without the buttering up, because its a great cause. Farm Aid is, for those of you who have been hiding under the food charities rock, a charity that throws a concert every year featuring big names (Willie Nelson and John Mellencamp are the kings of Farm Aid) to support American small farmers. A good cause, because they fight big corporate farms that get farmers stuck in a cycle, using their seeds and growing their crops. A lot of the crops being corn. Big. Corporate. Corn. So you go, Farm Aid!
So now for the contest. Farm Aid is having a photo contest, where you can enter your own photo supporting American farmers with the awesome grand prize of two VIP passes and front row tickets to the show in October. Oh yea, and they'll pay your expenses. Thats pretty sweeeet!
So sweet that I entered my own photo, which if you recognize its awesomeness, you can vote for. FYI voting is $1 a vote donated to Farm Aid, so its a good cause!
If you want to enter a photo, you need to do so by the end of next week, September 6th. So go to your farmers market or u pick farm this weekend, or even your own backyard and snap away!
