Farm Rescue accepting applications for spring planting


With spring planing just around the corner, Farm Rescue is currently accepting applications from farm families in need of crop planting assistance.

The nonprofit organization provides planting and harvesting assistance to farm families that have experience a major injury, illness or natural disaster. They are accepting planting requests from farmers in North Dakota, South Dakota, Minnesota and eastern Montana.

Families assisted are selected based on a number of factors including extent of need, farm size, farm viability, and geographic location for moving equipment and volunteers in a timely manner. Although there is no deadline to apply, applications postmarked by April 1 receive priority consideration. Each family may receive up to 1,000 acres planted free of charge.

Farm Rescue was founded by Bill Gross, a native North Dakotan and a full-time pilot for UPS Airlines.
