|Why can't I get any of this "delicious food from family farmers" at the Farm Aid concert?|
Why, why, why, can't I get any of this "delicious food from family farmers" at the Farm Aid concert? I have been going to your shows for years now and all day, all I hear about is good food that I can't find anywhere on site. Help!
Little by little, we have tried to address this disconnect. Family farm co-ops Patchwork Family Farms and Cedar Grove Cheese have delighted our fans with BBQ pork and grilled cheese sandwiches over the years. In 2002, in Burgettstown, PA, we took a step in the right direction when we launched Organic World. We were proud to give a home to great companies like Organic Valley so that people could taste some of their delicious products. But we wanted to do more than give just a taste of good food! We're proud to say that this year we are!
In addition to Patchwork and Organic World and the standard concert fare, our fans will be able to choose foods that are entirely organic or sourced locally, from family farms. As you read this right now, we are working hard to make sure that the food choices at Farm Aid '06 Presented by Silk Soymilk are prime examples of all the hope and energy that we see in the Good Food Movement.
Check this out: At the show this year you will have your choice of organic hotdogs, organic hamburgers, veggie burgers, organic popcorn, organic fruit juice drinks, organic cookies, Portobello hoagies, yogurt parfaits and more! These yummy treats will be available at three different stations, made to order-FRESH!
We are very proud of this change and we hope to continue working in this direction in future years. So, come out and help support good food and good music. Eat the food and send a message: "We want food from family farms!"
