Series of benefit concerts started in 1985 by Bob Dylan, John Mellencamp, Neil Young, and Willie Nelson. The idea was to raise money to help out family farms which were being deicmated in the Reagan era.

Unlike most of the 80's charity concerts, this one actually survived, and Farm Aid 2000 takes place in Virginia this September. http://www.farmaid.org/ has some interesting information about the history of it, and what they're doing now.
