Farm Aid’s HOMEGROWN Concessions® is the first-of-its-kind model for featuring family farm-identified, local and organic foods at major concert events. HOMEGROWN Concessions® has fed 200,000 concertgoers since its introduction in 2007 at the HOMEGROWN Festival at Randall’s Island in New York City. It has served as a model for entertainment events, including the Super Bowl and a variety of music festivals and venues that have embraced the Good Food Movement in concessions.

HOMEGROWN Concessions® brings concertgoers family farm-sourced foods that conform to its criteria: food that is sustainably produced by family farmers, utilizing ecological practices, with a commitment to a fair price for farmers. Menu items included humanely raised meat, local and organic produce and ingredients and bread made with organic flour.
Take a look at last year’s menu items, which were sourced from local-area farmers – many of whom are past Farmer Heroes, like the Shenandoah Farm Chicken Tenders, which will be served with Bigg Riggs Farm BBQ Sauce. And, stay tuned for details about the mouth-watering 2017 menu!
