You’ve probably already heard that this year’s Farm Aid concert is going to be in St. Louis on Oct. 4th.  We are all very excited by this news and look forward to Farm Aid bringing more awareness to issues facing family farmers. 

We had the chance to meet the fine folks who run the Farm Aid organization at the press conference and again when they came to dinner at the cafe last night. Seriously, these folks could not be nicer or more dedicated.  They seemed to thoroughly enjoy the food–trout was a favorite, along with the cucumber bisque, shiitake bruschetta, and Jayne’s Lemon Cake.  Oh, and also a shout out to Claverach’s Chambourcin wine which we all drank with delight. 

Local Harvest Grocery and Cafe plant to help promote and be involved in anyway we can.  Yesterday was another reminder of the importance not only to keep doing what we’re doing, but to let folks know why we buy from local family farms.

More to come surely.  In the mean time please check out the website and see how you can get involved.   www.farmaid.org

yours in farming,

Maddie
