Farmers who need custom combining and combiners looking for a job may call (701) 425-8454. Your name and information will be entered into the Harvest Hotline database to be matched up with other callers.
North Dakota Department of Agriculture (NDDA) employees will answer calls to the hotline weekdays from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Callers can also leave a message on evenings and weekends. There is also a Harvest Hotline Map Site that shows the combiners information. The service is free of charge.
Both farmers and combiners are already calling in,” Agriculture Commissioner Doug Goehring said.
Do you have extra produce? We are encouraging farmers and gardeners to plant an extra acre or row of produce and donate fresh fruits and vegetable to food pantries, soup kitchens, and other charitable community programs. Everyone in the state is invited to become a part of the project and help your neighbors in need. Find out how to help!
$40,000 in funds are available to help plant community orchards. Deadline for applications is October 23, 2015. To learn more visit http://www.nd.gov/ndda/program-info/local-foods-initiative/community-orchard-project.
Shop from many Pride of Dakota members at the Harvest Showcases! You’ll find unique products and great gift ideas, including gourmet food, wine, art, books, jewelry, apparel, sporting goods, home décor, children and pet items, and more!
A new program to assist and support landowners and tenants on pipeline reclamation and restoration issues is now available. The program also provides educational outreach.
