Farm Aid Coming to Saratoga Springs

Willie Nelson, Neil Young, John Mellencamp, and Dave Matthews are known for headlining Farm Aid, a concert to raise money to help family farmers. This year, Farm Aid is coming to our New York State Office’s hometown–Saratoga Springs. “This region has strong agricultural roots and offers fertile ground for new farmers and sustainable agriculture,” said Farm Aid President Willie Nelson. “On the Farm Aid stage we’ll celebrate the hard work of family farmers and support their efforts to grow strong and healthy communities for all of us.” The Farm Aid concert will be held on September 21 at the Saratoga Performing Art Center. American Farmland Trust will have an exhibit in the HOMEGROWN Village and will join farmers and farm advocates in the Farm Yard to talk with concert goers and the media about saving farmland from being paved over by shopping malls and subdivisions.
