OUR MISSION SINCE 1985.

Farm Aid’s mission is to keep family farmers on the land. We’re best known for our annual music, food and farm festival, but the truth is we work each and every day, year-round to build a system of agriculture that values family farmers, good food, soil and water, and strong communities.

Learn more about our day-to-day work to celebrate and strengthen farmers, advocate for fair farm policies, connect farmers and eaters, and bring family farm food to everyone.
