It's almost here! The Farm Aid concert is in St. Louis this year and we can't wait. Gates open at 12:30 on Sunday, Oct. 4 at the Verizon Wireless Ampitheatre. Featured artists and spokespersons are Willie Nelson, John Mellencamp, Dave Matthews and Neil Young. Up-and-coming acts include Jason Mraz. If you haven't heard him, check him out on YouTube. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LYhrYHmUPn0
Watch for all of us Sappington Farmers Market people. We will be all over the place!
We provided the straw, mums, pumpkins, gourds and apples for the decorations.
We provided much of the food for backstage. And best of all, we will be there with our own Farmstand Booth selling delicious farm-raised food prepared by student interns from St. Louis University. There will be fresh local apples and caramel apples made with organic agave syrup and whole grain organic cookies and rice krispy bars. Try the deviled eggs from our egg supplier, Good Earth Eggs from Bonne Terre, MO. They are the only large-scale local producer left in the St. Louis area and they feed their hens a special blend of naturally-grown grains. For drinks, try the fresh local apple cider.
We'll also have a special interactive seed booth and Randy Wood and his brother Russ will have some fish for you to see in their aquaculture setup.
Look for me in the Press Event. I'm incredibly excited to be part of this awesome event! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KD0DdRNjgUI
