MILWAUKEE, Sept. 30 /PRNewswire/ — In support of the timeless partnership between farmer and the pickup truck, the Ram Truck brand is giving back as the exclusive automotive sponsor of “Farm Aid 25: Growing Hope for America” concert in Milwaukee at Miller Park. As the exclusive automotive sponsor of the Sat., Oct. 2, concert, the Ram Truck brand is assisting the Farm Aid organization in its mission to support family farmers in order to provide food that is local, organic and humanely raised.
“Ram Heavy Duty Truck customers use their trucks as work vehicles, many of which are used by family-run farms and hard-working people within the agricultural industry,” said Jeff Kommor, Midwest Business Center Director, Chrysler Group LLC. “The Ram Truck brand is proud to be the official vehicle of ‘Farm Aid 25: Growing Hope for America,’ and we appreciate the hard work and dedication that the American family farm delivers day in and day out.”

Also on site, “Homegrown” concessions will feature food organically produced by local farmers. A “Homegrown Village” of interactive exhibits will offer an education in food and farming. The village features hands-on activities, giving concert-goers a chance to meet farmers and get their hands dirty. Farmers will be on hand to educate attendees on how they are enriching the soil, protecting the water and growing green energy, in addition to producing food. From beekeeping and composting to preserving and seed saving, attendees can learn more about the roots of their food.
The Farm Aid concert is dedicated to American farmers and features music performed by America’s premier artists. In its 25th year, the Milwaukee Farm Aid concert will showcase musical performances by legends Willie Nelson, Neil Young, John Mellencamp, Dave Mathews and more.
