Devastated Farmers Still Need Help
As farmers in Colorado deal with serious flood damage and ranchers in South Dakota dig out from an early blizzard that killed tens of thousands of cattle, Farm Aid has activated its Family Farm Disaster Fund and issued emergency grants to help farm and ranch families begin to recover.
Farm Aid is working with partners in disaster-affected areas to determine long-term needs of farmers and ranchers as they recover from these disasters. If you or your family have been affected by the disasters in Colorado and South Dakota or by the government shutdown, please contact Farm Aid at 1-800-FARM-AID (800-327-6243) or [email protected].
