Listen to this story
One more story from last weekend's Farm Aid in Saratoga Springs.

There was a huge tent at the concert showcasing farm-related not-for-profits called the Homegrown Village.

Essex County-based group Adirondack Harvest had a nifty and popular display. You wrote the name of your neighborhood farmer on neon-colored post-it note and stuck it on a big map of the Northeast.

The result was an impressive visual guide to the small farms of the region. Listen to an interview with Adirondack Harvest coordinator Laurie Davis.
