Companion Named Official Baker of Farm Aid 2009!

Companion has been named the Official Baker of Farm Aid 2009, to be held at Verizon Wireless Amphitheater on October 4, 2009! All of our bread provided for the concert is made using all organic flours, and we’re thrilled to be a part of such a great cause. Farm Aid proudly supports and raises money for farmers across the U.S, and promotes awareness of the Good Food Movement. Willie Nelson, Neil Young and John Mellencamp organized the first Farm Aid concert in 1985 to raise awareness about the loss of family farms and to raise funds to keep farm families on their land. Dave Matthews joined the Farm Aid Board of Directors in 2001. Farm Aid has raised nearly $35 million to promote a strong and resilient family farm system of agriculture. Learn more here.
