Farm Rescue Accepting Applications For Planting

JAMESTOWN, N.D. (AP) — A nonprofit organization that helps farm families in need is accepting planting applications from farmers in North Dakota, South Dakota, Minnesota, Iowa and eastern Montana.

Farm Rescue assisted 50 farm families in 2013 and hopes to help a similar number of families as available funding and volunteer staffing allows.

Farm Rescue was founded in 2006 by Bill Gross to assist farm families who have experienced major illness, injury or natural disaster and has helped more than 250 families since its inception.

Gross says the group encourages friends and neighbors to anonymously refer a family that needs assistance since some families are hesitant to ask for help.

Priority is given to applications received by April 1.
