“With devastating weather, low prices and harmful farm and trade policies, America’s family farmers are facing immense challenges to hold onto their farms. It’s not right… family farmers are essential for all of us…At Farm Aid 2019, we’ll highlight solutions and show our support for family farmers’ contributions to our health, economy and environment.” – Willie Nelson

The HOMEGROWN Village
The HOMEGROWN Village is like a mini festival within a festival! In the Village, festivalgoers explore hands-on activities that engage all of their senses in the Farm Aid mission. Hear farmers and artists talk together about pressing issues on the FarmYard Stage, attend demonstrations to learn agrarian skills and celebrate the culture of agriculture in the HOMEGROWN Skills tent, connect with farmers and organizations doing critical food and farm work all over the country and so much more.
Each Farm Aid festival features Farm Aid’s HOMEGROWN Concessions®, the first-of-its-kind model for featuring family farm-identified, local and organic foods at major concert events. Pioneering a change in food for the music business, HOMEGROWN Concessions® features family farm food according to Farm Aid’s criteria: sustainably produced by family farmers, using ecological practices, with a fair price paid to the farmers. HOMEGROWN Concessions® has fed more than 283,000 festivalgoers since its introduction at Farm Aid in 2007. Backstage, artists and crew enjoy HOMEGROWN Catering with the same family farm standards. Farm Aid uses all compostable serviceware and promotes and facilitates composting for the venue with a goal of zero waste.
“At Farm Aid…we’ll come together to stand up to the handful of corporations that control our food system. If you want a better world, it starts with you.” — John Mellencamp
Farm Aid has partnered with Hotels For Hope to assist festivalgoers with their lodging needs for Farm Aid 2019. Every room night booked through Hotels for Hope generates a $2 donation to a charitable organization that seeks to help children live happier and healthier lives. Farm Aid’s HOMEGROWN Youthmarket, which trains urban youth to operate farmers markets in neighborhoods that have limited access to fresh, healthy food, will be the recipient of the donations raised through rooms booked for Farm Aid 2019.
