Luke Bryan wrapped his 13th annual “Farm Tour 2022” Saturday night (Sept. 24), ending a run of six shows across family farms in Indiana, Ohio, Michigan, Nebraska, Iowa, and Minnesota. The tour, which sets up stages in the fields of farmers in small towns across the country, also featured Riley Green, Jameson Rodgers, the Peach Pickers, and DJ Rock as special guests.
More than 100,000 fans have attended the tour each year since its inception in 2009, and Bryan gives back to the farmers by awarding college scholarships to students from farming families who are attending the local college or university near the tour stops. To date, 78 scholarships have been granted through the tour proceeds.
Bayer, who sponsored the tour, teamed up with Bryan to help fight hunger through its #HerestotheFarmer campaign. The campaign asks fans across the country to share the hashtag #HerestotheFarmer on their socials to show their gratitude to America’s farmers. Through Oct. 31 for every share, Bayer will provide one meal to a person in need through Feeding America. Since the partnership’s inception, 6 million meals have been donated and more than $180,000 has gone to Feeding America member food banks and local farmers at each of the tour cities.
Bryan also partnered with the National Pork Board in their ongoing campaign to dispel common misconceptions about modern pig farming. They, in turn, partnered with Farmland, a brand of Smithfield Foods, to donate a truckload of protein to local food banks in each of the states that hosted the six Farm Tour stops. Farmland also donated $9,000 to each state’s FFA Association.
Farm Tour sponsor Fendt also created Luke Bryan’s Boldly Grown Popcorn, and through proceeds donated $25,000 to the National FFA Organization.
