Neighbors, strangers help plant crops of Minnesota family coping with cancer

Published 04/25/2012, Forum Communications

With his wife battling cancer and five children to look out for — the youngest of whom is 2 years old — Matt Klemetson has a lot more to worry about than planting corn. On Tuesday, a few neighbors and friendly strangers stopped by to help pick up the slack. Four volunteers from Farm Rescue took on the job of planting 300 acres of corn at Klemetson’s farm, freeing him up for a hospital visit with his family. They’ll also plant 300 acres of soybeans. Based in Jamestown, N.D., Farm Rescue operates in Minnesota, the Dakotas, and eastern Montana.
