'They're in there helping the little guy': Janesville farmer explains how Farm Aid 2019 helps him

Of course-- free beer.

The farm aid concert is less than 24 hours away, but today people who came from all over the country got to learn about what the event's all about: farmers.

Amy reid shows us how a janesville farmer got to help and how farm aid is paying him back.

There's not just one thing to love about the hughes farm.

Sunflowers, soybeans and corn.

There's almost as many crops as generations involved.

And their story is one whilden hughes is happy to share.

0014 3:25 how many of them are farmers, first of all?

Do we have a lot of farmers in the group?

That's good that's what we were hoping for :30 and the other ones are musicians maybe?

:32 this group is the perfect one to share it with.

Not musicians but people from around the country in town for farm aid.

Traveling family farms and learning more about what farmers have to face.

32:58 it's that hidden thing, you know agriculture, we all eat, but we don't think about the farmers that produce that food and what they're going through :05 and what's happening with agriculture right now with the farm crisis :09 and so if nothing else it just brings attention to these issues :13 perry brown runs an organization that helps out small growers.

With farm aid in town, he's connecting the farmers to the event, which gives them a platform they may never have gotten without.

Nats: lunch when the farm tours stop here for lunch, they're eating local products.

Like organic blue corn chips from our friends the hughes.

And farm aid bought a large supply for saturday too.

21:36 i was happy that they cared.

That they are finding some little guy like me and buying my product when they could have had anything.

There's probably some national sponsor that would love to have their name on their trailer and handle their product every time they go to a place, but they don't do that.

They're in there helping the little guy, and i'm the little guy :51 so yeah we love it :54 a platform and an economic boost.

It's something farmers need, especially now.

But don't forget, it's a good time too.

36:20 and you get great music too i mean how can you, the best of both worlds for a farmer :24 in east troy, amy reid, news 3 now.

Farm aid starts tomorrow at noon.

If you can't make it, we'll be there.

You can watch our coverage tomorrow on news
