John Deere tractor helps out with North Dakota Farm Rescue project
Posted by Green Fun Store on 9/1/2010
According to North Dakota television station KXMC, volunteer group Farm Rescue has been working near the town of Bowbells, where a farm was recently destroyed by a tornado. Along with helping with the cleanup, the group is there to assist with any harvesting that needs to take place.
Andy Wittenburg was there helping out, armed with a CDL driver's license and his John Deere harvesting machine. This is his first trip out with the organization, which helps producers across the country.
"Stumbled onto it on the internet about two years ago, figured it would be fun," Wittenburg told the television station. "I'm an old farm boy out of Iowa and living on the Oregon Coast."
According to its website, Farm Rescue was founded in 2005 by Bill Gross, a North Dakota native who decided to help families in trouble after years of being a pilot for UPS.
