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.
