North Dakotan Innovation in the Face of Floods

KariNorth Dakotans have a long spring ahead of them as the danger of flooding is far from over. The Red River is said to be on the path to crest again in late April. Farm Aid is working with longtime ally Lutheran Social Services of North Dakota/Lutheran Disaster Response to get reports about how the flooding has affected farms and ranches. If you would like to help, please donate to the Family Farm Disaster Fund.

I received a few pictures recently from Matt Scheibe, a Farm Aid supporter who grew up in North Dakota. Matt reminded me why we can always count on farmers to be innovative and make the best of a bad situation. As you can see in the photo, grain augers double as mailbox holders in a pinch!
