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 $43 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.

  2. I would like to know how to contact Willie personally about a former employee, Tim Crocker, who is homeless in Houston and has epilepsy, Tim had asked me to contact Willie several years ago while he was in prison; but I have been in ill health (including a diagnosis of ALS in 2011 – then “undiagnosis” of it) and while I was in the hospital 31 days Nov.-Dect.2012 Tim and I lost touch because his cell phone number was no longer good. I think I’m the only person he had been in regular contact with. I’m hoping Willie remembers Tim and will help me find him and get help for him.

  4. Hi Willy,
    Bill Mack played a number by chet atkins about five years ago that was a guitar piece that was tones like I never heard before and can only describe it as something out of this world. Mack said that his recording company would not produce it as it was to strange. I email bill about this but he has not responded. I am afraid I waited to long to ask about this.
