Farm Aid’s mission is to build a vibrant, family farm-centred system of agriculture in America. Farm Aid artists and board members Willie Nelson, Neil Young, John Mellencamp, and Dave Matthews host an annual festival to raise funds to support Farm Aid’s work with family farmers and to inspire people to choose family farm food. For more than 30 years, Farm Aid, with the support of the artists who contribute their performances each year, has raised nearly $60 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.
