A portion of the proceeds from the Martha’s Vineyard Food & Wine Festival will benefit The Martha’s Vineyard Agricultural Society. Established in 1859, the Ag Society promotes the pursuit of agriculture, horticulture, land conservation, youth activities, mechanic and domestic arts, and encourages the raising and improving of plant and animal stock and the sale of Island-grown produce and flowers at local farmers’ markets.

Their annual grant program assists and perpetuates agriculture on Martha’s Vineyard.
