June 14, 2013 at 2:08 PM (PT)
"FARM AID" will return on SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 21st, at the SARATOGA PERFORMING ARTS CENTER in SARATOGA SPRINGS, NY. It is scheduled to include event founders WILLIE NELSON, JOHN MELLENCAMP, NEIL YOUNG and DAVE MATTHEWS with additional performers to be announced in the coming months.
"In NEW YORK and across the NORTHEAST, family farmers are pioneering change in our farm and food system. This region has strong agricultural roots and offers fertile ground for new farmers and sustainable agriculture," said "FARM AID" Pres. WILLIE NELSON. "On the 'FARM AID' stage in SEPTEMBER, we'll celebrate the hard work of family farmers and support their efforts to grow strong and healthy communities for all of us."
The all-day music and food festival will benefit and promote "FARM AID's" mission to keep family farmers on the land, strengthen and revitalize AMERICA's food system, and support the growth of the "GOOD FOOD MOVEMENT" (people seeking local, organic, humanely-raised and family farm-identified food).
