Farm Aid – which was founded by Nelson, Mellencamp and Young – began in 1985 in Champaign, Ill., at Memorial Stadium. As the longest running benefit concert series in America, Farm Aid has raised more than $37 million towards its mission of keeping family farmers on their land and inspiring people to take part in “the Good Food movement.”
Farm Aid 25: Growing Hope For America featured performances from Kenny Chesney, Norah Jones, Jason Mraz, Jeff Tweedy, Band Of Horses, BoDeans, Amos Lee and Robert Francis.
