Letting the next generation see it and teaching them how to move into it to be able to live a healthy, sustainable, enjoyable life." - Denise Jamerson, Farmer & Advocate

At the heart of Farm Aid, you’ll find connection; connection to family farmers, the land, music, good food and, most importantly, to each other. Together, we form a powerful community of people doing good in whatever way they can to build a better future of farming for all of us. Thank you for being part of the movement for family farmers.

If you’ve joined us at a Farm Aid festival, you’ve likely felt this spirit of connection yourself. We at Farm Aid believe that transformation is possible when people connect meaningfully to our movement and experience the kind of agriculture we all deserve. At the Farm Aid festival, we deepen our relationship with our farm and food system by celebrating family farmers, eating the good food they grow, digging into the culture of agriculture and letting the power of the music unite us.

The festival grows our movement and renews our spirit to act. But the real strength of Farm Aid comes from all of us showing up and standing together to ensure our agricultural system values farmers, eaters, the environment and our communities.
