Two weeks ago, I had the unique opportunity to attend a gathering of 200 activists and organizers from across the United States as they discussed the state of farming today.
At PepperFest, with every bite of delicious peppery dish, and each sip of spicy pepper-infused beer,we are propagating a world that is free of genetically-modified organisms, free of patents on seed varieties, and free to adapt as needed. We are all helping create a stronger local food system and a better future for our children.
Cash Flow: The Common Language Between Farmers and Lenders.
This webinar, featuring Gary Matteson of Farm Credit, covered the basics of farm business planning, as it applies to borrowing.
We were honored to host Farm Aid in our own backyard here in North Carolina for this year’s concert. By all accounts, Farm Aid 2014 was a smashing success, with a sold-out show, amazing performances, and important dialogues with farmers and agricultural organizations from across the country. We’re looking forward to building on the momentum created by the concert and we will be sharing more of our reflections on the events of the past week and plans for the future very soon. In the meantime, we’re excited to share some of the fantastic press and media coverage of Farm Aid 2014.
We would like to welcome Farm Aid to North Carolina, as we would welcome an old friend into our home. Farm Aid was created 29 years ago to respond to the needs of farm families facing the pain of losing their farms. Some of our staff members were there at that first concert, and ever since we and other organizations like us have worked closely with Farm Aid to serve farmers in need.
