Our Impact

Meet Our Volunteers

To meet a Farm Rescue Volunteer is to put a name and a face to the word "Hero". Farm Rescue Volunteers come from many places with a common mission: to help farm and ranch families in crisis.

Because it is impossible for you to see their giving personalities and selfless characters through names on a screen, we've provided links for you to view their testimonials. Watch and be inspired by the impact these Hometown Heroes are having, no matter what walk of life they have trod.

Below are just a few of Farm Rescue's "Angels in Blue" that have given of their time to support our mission.
