HERSHEY, Pa. (AP) -- The country's longest-running benefit concert is headed back to Pennsylvania this fall. Farm Aid will be held at Hersheypark on September 22nd and all the regulars are expected to be there -- Willie Nelson, Neil Young, John Mellencamp and Dave Matthews. Farm Aid has raised more than $40 million to help keep family farmers on their land. Matthews, a Farm Aid board member, owns a farm and vineyard in Virginia. He says farmers who've been helped by the organization have come up to him on the street to thank him. Matthews calls it "heartbreaking," the way modern agriculture is destroying small and mid-sized farmers, and he feels like he's "doing something worthwhile."
