Award-winning American Harvest Organic Spirit is an American-made, organic vodka to which a proprietary blend of organic ingredients has been added, creating a truly unique vodka specialty. Handcrafted in small batches from organic winter wheat grown on a family owned and sustainably managed American farm, American Harvest is distilled and bottled in Rigby, Idaho using water from aquifers deep beneath the Snake River plain. The brand has been developed with great care for the quality, organic nature and sustainable growing practices of all of its ingredients and has no artificial additives or preservatives. American Harvest is produced with a continuous column distillation process and charcoal filtration to ensure the integrity and purity of the spirit resulting in a distinctly smooth, clean, crisp taste. The American Harvest Distillery is independently owned and operated and is USDA Certified Organic by Oregon Tilth.
"American Harvest is proud to support like-minded organizations such as Farm Aid," says Bill Henderson, Executive Vice President of Marketing at Sidney Frank Importing Company, Inc. "Like America itself, American Harvest was built on a promise. From field to bottle, a promise to create the finest quality product, without compromise to the environment or our nation's natural resources."
"Everyone has a role to play to support family farmers and empower the Good Food Movement. The generous support from American Harvest Organic Spirit really makes a difference for Farm Aid's work. We are proud to welcome American Harvest in Farm Aid 2013," adds Farm Aid Associate Director, Glenda Yoder.
Farm Aid's mission is to build a vibrant, family farm-centered system of agriculture in America. Farm Aid artists and board members Willie Nelson, Neil Young, John Mellencamp and Dave Matthews host an annual concert to raise funds to support Farm Aid's work with family farmers and to inspire people to choose family farm food. Since 1985, Farm Aid, with the support of the artists who contribute their performances each year, has raised more than $43 million to support programs that help farmers thrive, expand the reach of the Good Food Movement, take action to change the dominant system of industrial agriculture and promote food from family farms.
