Farm Rescue in its 8th harvest season

Farm Rescue is gearing up for its eighth harvest season and on schedule to help more than 50 families this year.

By the end of this year, Farm Rescue will have assisted a total of more than 300 farm families in crisis.

Each of the families has experienced an illness, injury or natural disaster that prevented them from planting, haying or harvesting their crop in a timely manner.

The nonprofit organization is supported primarily by business sponsors, personal donations and grants from foundations. The Leona M. and Harry B. Helmsley Charitable Trust is currently matching new donations to Farm Rescue 2-for-1. RDO Equipment Company sponsors field equipment.
