Highlights of the work Farm Rescue has been doing over the last few years will also be featured during the virtual concert. And while the concert is free, donations are encouraged. Erdmann says those willing to donate just $10 will earn a chance at a meet and greet with some of the featured artists.

Since Farm Rescue began back in 2006 with just planting assistance for farm families in need, it has grown to cover several states in the Midwest now including Kansas, Nebraska, the Dakotas, Minnesota, Montana, and Iowa providing help for anything from putting up hay, to feeding livestock and harvest assistance.
