Farmers who are struck by illness, disability or natural disaster are aided by members of the organization, as the volunteers have used farm equipment to help their fellow Americans around the country.

The Farm Rescue volunteers came to the aid of farmers in North Dakota, as the organization looked to help people in the agricultural industry in the state who were left without the ability to look after their land themselves, the Minnesota Farm Guide reported.

According to the news outlet, farmers who are struck by illness, disability or natural disaster are aided by members of the organization, as the volunteers have used farm equipment to help their fellow Americans around the country.

A local organization helped the operation by donating two 60-foot John Deere air seeders and a 24-foot John Deere corn and soybean planter. This was in addition to the three tractors and carts from the company that will be used for the 2012 planting season.

"We had a lot of applications for help from corn farmers, and in the past we had to turn them away. This year, we’re able to help seed corn thanks to the corn planter from RDO," Rita Jarrett, an official with Farm Rescue, told the news source.

According to the organization's website, the work is 100 percent reliant on volunteer work and farmers around the country have seen their operations return to glory because of this effort.
