FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:

(CHARLOTTE, NORTH CAROLINA) – Carolina Jubilee, a benefit for local food sustainability will be held on over October 16th-17th. The two-day event will showcase local bands and vendors, with all proceeds to benefit the Carolina Farm Trust. Tickets available at http://www.carolinafarmtrust.org/<http://www.carolinafarmtrust.org/>

The Carolina Jubilee

When: October 16th - 17th, 2015

Where: VanHoy Farms, Harmony, NC

The Carolina Jubilee Festival is an annual music event with the mission of providing support for the Farm-to-Table Initiative with locally produced food and beverages and a wide variety of regional bands.

Local and regional farms will be represented and education will be provided on the importance of the industry and its sustainability. Carolina Jubilee will also invite vendors and organizations that focus on clean energy and the promotion of eco-friendly products and services.

The two-day festival will take place at the gorgeous VanHoy Farms Family Campground, known to have over 100 rolling peaceful acres of land with full camping facilities and amenities: hiking, water activities, pool, event coliseum and more.

About Carolina Farm Trust

Carolina Farm Trust is a locally run 501c3 with the plan to encourage and bring action to regional food sustainability. Our mission is to protect farm land and foster an ecosystem of sustainable farming. The loss rate of farm land is alarming. Every year 100,000 acres of land is lost to urban and suburban development in North Carolina alone. What is the biggest hurdle starting a farm or expanding a farm? Land. CFT is looking to compete with developers for land, buy it, and lease it back to the farming community, at rates low enough to cover the taxes. This will work two ways: it will allow new entrepreneur farmers to have access to land and existing farms to build and expand. By giving land access to new entrepreneur farmers and existing farmers to expand, we are helping the supply reach the local demand. Our goals are based on true economic development and investment in the Carolina region.

"I care deeply about our small agriculture community and hope to save our farm land, provide economic development within the agriculture community, as well as bring other nonprofits and people of all walks of life together to focus on sustainable initiatives that are crucial to our means of survival", states Wyatt, Executive Director of Carolina Farm Trust.

To get involved…

There are so many ways to get involved and support our mission:

· Pick up a ticket to the festival in October

· Become a sponsor of, or vendor at the event

· Become a featured farmer

· Volunteer!
