Suzanne Nelson Karreman and her family, along with a dedicated and passionate farm team,…
Come see Animal Welfare Approved staff members Beth, Brigid and Emily at the annual Farm Aid concert, featuring Farm Aid board members Willie Nelson, Neil Young, John Mellencamp and Dave Matthews. Farm Aid has raised awareness about farm preservation since the first concert in 1985.
One of Farm Aid’s core goals is “Growing the Good Food Movement,” which it defines as: “growing the number of Americans reaching for and demanding family farm-identified, local, organic or humanely-raised food.” We couldn’t agree more.
If you are in the St. Louis area this weekend, come say hello! You can find us at the following events:
- Farm Meets Fork Dinner
- HomeGrown Urban Country Fair
- Farm Aid Eve at Blueberry Hill (BBQ fundraiser featuring Animal Welfare Approved grassfed burgers from American Grass Fed Beef and Animal Welfare Approved pork from Fudge Family Farms)
- A Farmer/Urban Connection (public briefing)
- The Farmyard at the Homegrown Village
Also in the lineup are Wilco, Jason Mraz, Gretchen Wilson, Jamey Johnson, Tim Reynolds and more. Visit www.FarmAid.org for a complete line-up, details on how to listen to the concert online, and info on this great organization.
