We were honored to be invited to participate as a VIP Farm Hero at the 38th Annual Farm Aid. It was delightful to meet everyone during this collaborative event to improve the American Family Farm. the proudest moment was seeing the patriarch of our family; Norman Greer, receiving a standing ovation after the interview was presented on the jumbotron at Farm Aid.

We shared the stage with music legends; Willie Nelson, also Founder of Farm Aid; Dave Matthews, John Mellencamp and Neil Young. Since 1985, Farm Aid has stood with all farmers to challenge corporate power, industrial agriculture and advance equity in our farm and food systems. By strengthening the voices of family farmers, Farm Aid stands up for the people upon whom we all depend.

They believe in our core values of strengthening and growing more family farms and minimizing industrial farming. Farm Aid honored us and all generational farmers and encouraged us to continue to educate, strengthen and grow more family farms in agriculture.

We strive to teach the next generation how to have a healthy, sustainable, and enjoyable life. It is vital for people of color to get into and remain in agriculture. It’s empowering to grow your own food and care for your family at the same time. There is an important significance in continuing your family's legacy. We are doing our part and we are working together to help everyone fulfill their dream of building their own family legacy. Once again we thank everyone that had a hand in giving our family one of the best experiences of our lives!

This story aired at Farm Aid 2023 during our press event, where artists and the farmers featured in these films joined together on stage to share their stories.

Legacy Taste of the Garden represents a multi-generational African American family whose farm has been in operation since before the Civil War, situated in the historic Lyles Station. Lyles Station, located in Patoka Township in southwestern Indiana, stands as the sole remaining African American rural settlement in Indiana. We have been actively engaged in outreach, education, advocacy, and technical assistance to address the unique needs of BIPOC farmers and producers.

We were proud to share our story of the Legacy with the Farm Aid Film crew to share with the world. Our family looks forward to continuing to work diligently with the community by establishing networks and offer support to growers in both urban and rural settings.

We are excited to share a delegation of 11 Federation of Southern Cooperatives/Land Assistance Fund Staff and Members are in Noblesville, Indiana, today and will participate in Farm Aid. There will be a discussion of theimportance of passing the farm bill in Congress.

Each year, Farm Aid board members Willie Nelson, Neil Young, John Mellencamp, Dave Matthews and Margo Price host a Farm Aid festival to bring together a wide variety of artists, farmers and fans for one mission: keeping family farmers on the land. Farm Aid is an all-day festival that brings together incredible music, good food and hands-on activities to get folks in touch with the roots of our food. Since 1985, Farm Aid has raised more than $70 million to help family farmers thrive all over the country while inspiring millions of people to take part in the Good Food Movement.
