We received a comment recently asking for gift ideas and as I was wrestling with what to get for the last few folks on my list I came up with the following ideas. I wanted to purchase gifts that will not only be appreciated but also will support the family farmers Farm Aid works with all year. Maybe this list will help you find that last elusive gift! Check it out and let me know if you decide to try any of them!
1. Support one of Farm Aid’s funded groups. You can purchase food created and sold by family farmers that have come together to bring their products to the public. Buy a warm wool blanket, family farm cheese, homegrown ham or honey and you’ll know your loved one is getting a great gift and you are supporting family farmers.
2. Give someone you love a gift of fresh family farm grown food! Visit Local Harvest to find a CSA near you and purchase a share for a friend or family member or give a gift certificate to a local restaurant – use the Eat Well Guide to find a restaurant in their neighborhood that supports family farmers.
3. Finally, I don’t mean to brag, but we’ve got lots of great gifts, for music fans, food lovers and kids in our online store. My personal favorites are the Snappy Suits for babies and the new Farm Aid Christmas ornament.
