About Us

Farm Aid is a national, not for profit organization whose mission is to cultivate a vibrant and just, family farm-centered system of agriculture in the United States. Farm Aid artists and board members Willie Nelson, Neil Young, John Mellencamp, Dave Matthews and Margo Price host an annual festival to raise funds to support Farm Aid’s year-round work with family farmers and to inspire people to value and choose family farm food. Since 1985, through the generosity of the artists who contribute their performances each year, Farm Aid has raised more than $64 million to support our programs that help farmers thrive, grow the Good Food Movement, take action to change the dominant system of industrial agriculture and promote food from family farms. Farm Aid’s work aims to:

  • Amplify the voices of family farmers to bring attention to the challenges they face and the benefits they bring;
  • Connect farmers to resources and opportunities, connect farmers to eaters, and in general connect people so that they may cultivate community and power;
  • Celebrate family farmers, good food and the culture of agriculture, in which we all can participate; 
  • Empower farmers and eaters to participate in a democratic, just and sustainable farm and food system; and
  • Invest talent, time and money in efforts that effect positive change in the farm and food system.

Farm Aid’s vision—of a transformed America in which family farmers and eaters are partners in a thriving farm and food system that benefits all—is not possible without actively being part of the struggle for racial equity and justice. We are on an active journey of learning how to express our values and take stronger action to end racism in our society and in our farm and food system. We are committed to listening, learning and strengthening our work to advance racial equity and justice.
