No road trip with a van full of supplies, people, and seltzers! But there will be a Farm Aid! It’ll be virtual, and although I’m looking forward to this virtual Farm Aid Festival on September 26, I already miss all the hustle and bustle that has gone into getting ready for, being present at, and recovering from Farm Aid!
