Farm Aid: A Song For America


Farm Aid

Published on Feb 4, 2015

A look at Farm Aid’s thirty years of history working to keep family farmers on the land.

“Farm Aid supports a food system that is democratic, independent, competitive and locally based. This isn’t an exercise in nostalgia, it’s a commitment to a way of life. These are values worth fighting for.”
–– Eric Schlosser

Farm Aid was started by Willie Nelson, Neil Young and John Mellencamp in 1985 to keep family farmers on the land and has worked since then to make sure everyone has access to good food from family farmers. Dave Matthews joined Farm Aid’s board of directors in 2001.
