Farm Aid

MDG has been a supporter of Farm Aid since she was just a wee little thing, back when it was just John Cougar Mellenkamp (yep he had a middle name back them) and a few friends raising money to help local farmers protect their farmland. Now the annual benefit concert can count Willie Nelson, Dave Matthews and Neil Young as allies -- along with the great people at The Good Food Movement – helping to keep family farmers on their land, strengthening and revitalizing our food system and supporting local, organic, humanely raised food. After all, this shindig is all about the farmer and their food. Quite right.

This year’s concert takes place at the Saratoga Performing Arts Center in Saratoga Springs, NY, on Saturday, September 21. That might seem like a very long time away, but tickets went on sale this past Friday, June 28 so you might want to add it to your immediate to do list.
