National Farm Rescue Day

The third Thursday in March every year is National Farm Rescue Day. National Farm Rescue Day is dedicated to the volunteers that have served the volunteer organization Farm Rescue Foundation.

Farm Rescue is a nonprofit organization that provides planting, harvesting or haying assistance to farm and ranch families who experienced a major illness, injury or natural disaster. Farm Rescue was founded in 2005 by a pilot named Bill Gross who wanted to “buy a tractor, be a Good Samaritan and help people and families going through a crisis.”

The organization now serves farm families in Illinois, eastern Montana, Iowa, Nebraska, Kansas, and Minnesota. Click here to learn more.
