BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) — The Farm Rescue nonprofit’s annual banquet this fall will feature a benefit concert by country music singer Jason Brown.

North Dakota-based Farm Rescue provides planting and harvesting help to farmers in the Dakotas, eastern Montana, Minnesota and Iowa who have suffered a major injury, illness or disaster. Brown was born and raised in Iowa, and he says helping farmers in crisis is “just the right thing to do.”

Farm Rescue was launched in 2006 and helped its 200th farmer last year. That figure is likely to approach 250 by the end of this year.

Farm Rescue’s annual banquet is Nov. 1 at the Best Western Ramkota in Bismarck.
