Staff from Farm Aid were in studio with Pam Jahnke Wednesday morning, to share details about the announced Farm Aid concert, Saturday, Sept. 21st, at Alpine Valley Music Theatre in East Troy. Many people don’t realize all the activities that Farm Aid coordinates and offers outside of the one day musical event. Jennifer Fahy, Communications Director with Farm Aid, took time to explain. Conversation begins about 45 minutes into the audio selection.
Getting up at 2 in the morning might shock some of her listeners, but for Pam Jahnke, it’s part of the business. Born in Northeastern Wisconsin, Pam Jahnke grew up in agriculture. Raised on her family’s 200-acre dairy farm, she learned the “farm work ethic” first hand.
