Farmers have a new place to turn in times of need.  The non-profit organization, Farm Rescue, is announcing plans to expand to Iowa.

The group's volunteers help harvest and plant for farmers unable to do it themselves because of injury or illness.

Bill Gross, President of Farm Rescue says, “The best thing about farm rescue is that it's created an avenue for people and businesses to come and help for families in our region. This is good for rural communities and also it increases the likelihood of future generations of family farmers.”

Farmers do have to submit some financial information about their circumstances when they apply for help from the group.
