Bill Krumwiede, 66, of Voltaire, N.D., started volunteering with Farm Rescue in 2006.

A Basin Electric retiree, Krumwiede had read a news account about the fledgling organization and called Bill Gross to see if he needed help.

"We started in April, on Matt Biele's place near Dickinson," Krumwiede says. "He'd had a back surgery and had to quit in the middle of spring work."

Krumwiede's worked dozens of places since then.

"I grew up on a farm and farmed five or six years myself," Krumwiede says.

He went with Basin Electric in Voltaire and then Beulah, N.D., before retiring back to Voltaire. Farm Rescue and caring for his family have become his missions.

"I enjoy farming -- combining especially. You meet a lot of good people in this work. There's a satisfaction in helping."
