Each Farm Aid festival features our HOMEGROWN Concessions®, the first-of-its-kind model for featuring family farm-identified, local and organic foods at major concert events. HOMEGROWN Concessions® has fed more than 283,000 festivalgoers 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. Backstage, artists and crew enjoy HOMEGROWN Catering with the same family farm standards. We use compostable service products and promote composting to festivalgoers and artists with a goal of zero waste.
