It has been a full week of setting up Tents, Stage, Stage Covers, Tables and Chairs for the Farm Aid 2012 – Hershey, PA. Willie Nelson, Neil Young and John Mellencamp organized the first Farm Aid concert in 1985 to raise awareness about the loss of family farms and to raise funds to keep farm families on their land. Dave Matthews joined the Farm Aid Board of Directors in 2001. Farm Aid has raised more than $40 million to promote a strong and resilient family farm system of agriculture.
