About Farm Aid

Willie Nelson, Neil Young and John Mellencamp organized the first Farm Aid concert in 1985 to raise awareness about the loss of family farms and to raise funds to keep farm families on their land. Since then, Farm Aid has raised more than $24 million to promote a strong family farm system of agriculture.

Through public education and direct grants, Farm Aid supports national, regional and local efforts to promote sustainable agriculture.
