Farm Aid’s mission is to build a vibrant, family farm-centered system of agriculture in America. Farm Aid artists and board members Willie Nelson, Neil Young, John Mellencamp and Dave Matthews host an annual concert to raise funds to support Farm Aid’s work with family farmers and to inspire people to choose family farm food. Since 1985, Farm Aid, with the support of the artists who contribute their performances each year, has raised more than $40 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.

My 24 yr old daughter Katrina Nichole died on the 24th of Jan,2015. This is the worst thing a parent can go through, we r suppose to go b 4 r kids. My daughter was found n her ex boyfriend garage with an extension cord around her neck. We r a very close family n we don’t have a lot of money, we still need help with putting my baby to rest, n e help is appreciated.
