Tanka Bars at Farm Aid

Farm Aid to feature South Dakota buffalo barWillie Nelson, John Mellencamp and other regular Farm Aid performers will have something new to munch on at Saturday’s sold-out concert in Boston: buffalo energy bars and some other natural foods.

The all-natural buffalo-and-cranberry Tanka Bar, made by a Native American-owned company on the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation, launched in October and is one of the approved snack foods for this year’s benefit concert at the Comcast Center.

“It’s a great thing for us to bring the Tanka Bar to a whole new market and show people on the East Coast what a great product buffalo is in general and from South Dakota and what a great product the Tanka Bar is for a ready-to-go food,” said Mark Tilsen, who owns Native American Natural Foods with Karlene Hunter.
