Watch Shannon Eldrege talk about why going to Farm Aid in 2013 was inspirational and important. For six years we've been facilitating getting fishermen to Farm Aid and fishing issues incorporated in the Farm Aid family's conversation. Every year our connections get stronger, the lessons shared and learned on the road to Farm Aid more fruitful, and elevated the profile of community based fishermen higher. Help us meet our goal of getting more Farm Aid again this year. Support our Indiegogo campaign today!
