Branch Mill Organic Farm held the First Annual Branch Mill Music Festival on Saturday, September 21.

Presented by SLO Music Vibes and Branch Mill Organic Farm, the festival was a special fundraiser to build a learning center for local youth focusing on growing their own organic food and sustainable living education featuring a children’s shipwreck themed area.

The music line-up was diverse with Dante Marsh (Soul Funk), Bear Market Riot (Folk Country), Ras Danny (Reggae), B & The Hive (Dreamy Pop), and Ventura County Dead Collective (Grateful Dead Tribute) performing.

An amazing variety of food and beverage vendors were on hand, including Feed My Soul, AR Catering, Kaceys and Whalebird Kombucha.

The festival crowd was in the spirit and everyone was joyfully present. If you weren’t fortunate enough to attend, these images will hopefully convince you to be there for the next one.
