    FARM AID 25 has a theme of "Growing Hope for America." The nonprofit organization, which features Willie Nelson, Neil Young, John Mellencamp and Dave Matthews on its board, is aiming to keep family farmers on their land and to create a family and farm-centered food system in this great country of ours and the org is planning a 25th anniversary concert in conjunction with this goal.

    "In 1985, we started out to save the family farmer. Now it looks like the family farmer is going to save us," FARM AID president Willie Nelson said in a statement. "As our nation continues to endure an historic economic downturn, America's family farmers offer us much hope."
