JAMESTOWN, N.D. (AP) — The Farm Rescue organization has started a new program to enable farmers to donate part of their harvest to the nonprofit.

Farm Rescue Founder and President Bill Gross says the “Give-A-Bushel” program is another way for farmers to help other farmers in need. Any donated bushels will be converted to cash for the nonprofit.

North Dakota-based Farm Rescue plants and harvests crops free of charge for farm families in the Dakotas, Minnesota and eastern Montana who have suffered a major illness, injury or natural disaster. The organization has helped more than 150 families since 2006. It is funded through donations, business sponsorships and grants.
