Farm Aid is an all-day music and food event that raises funds for family farmers and also raises consciousness of the value of locally grown and organic foods as a very possible alternative to corporate farming. Among the festival features include Homegrown Concessions, showcasing organic, local, humanely-raised, sustainable family farm ingredients. Festival goers have the opportunity to meet farmers, participate in hands-on food and farm activities, and educate themselves about the ways family farmers enrich the soil, protect the water supply and grow the economy.
Executive director of Farm aid, Carolyn Mugar, said, “The Farm Aid benefit concert takes place each year thanks to the generosity of artists who donate their talent to raise awareness about the crucial need we have for family farmers on the land. We are thrilled to have an eclectic lineup this year that includes returning artists, as well as artists new to the Farm Aid stage. Together, Farm Aid concertgoers and artists are changing our food system!”
