General info
FamilyFarmed is a non-profit organization committed to expanding the production, marketing and distribution of locally grown and responsibly produced food, in order to enhance the social, economic, and environmental health of our communities. It hosts the Good Food Festival annually.

The Good Food Festival & Conference helps connect financial resources to farms and Good Food businesses; helps grow local procurement capacity; engages local school districts; provides a forum to discuss local, statewide, and national food policy; and educates the public about the importance and impact of Good Food. Unique opportunities arise for growing the Good Food movement with all of these stakeholders networking through our important sessions and trade show exhibits.

The all-day Good Food Festival on Saturday gives families and individuals the opportunity to learn directly from experienced farmers and gardeners in our Organic Valley Good Food Commons; hear from thought leader panelists about the future of our agricultural system; watch chef demos highlighting local food; and engage with more than 100 farmer, food business, and non-profit exhibitors at the Good Food Marketplace.
