Busch Light corn can sales benefit Farm Rescue nonprofit

This ear’s for you

Busch Light corn cans are back in stores this spring.

HORACE, N.D. — As farmers hit the fields for the 2024 planting season, Busch Light corn cans are hitting shelves.

For each case sold through June, Busch Light will donate 10 cents — up to $200,000 — to Farm Rescue.

Farm Rescue is a nonprofit dedicated to providing aid to family farms experiencing hardships.

Fast Facts

• Since assisting its first farm family in 2006, Farm Rescue has helped 1,000 families stricken by unexpected crisis.

• Since 2019, Busch Light has helped raise $1.2 million for the organization.

• In 2020, the release of Busch Light corn cans directly helped fund Farm Rescue’s expansion into Kansas.

“We are honored to retain more than 85% of our annual sponsors and donors, with over 80% of our volunteers returning each year to carry out this life-changing work,” said Bill Gross, founder of Farm Rescue.

“The statistic we are most proud of, however, is that 97% of the families we assist are still farming three years later.

“These impressive numbers are truly a positive affirmation that the compassionate mission of Farm Rescue resonates clearly with our supporters and is having a beneficial impact on agribusiness.”

Busch Light encourages any farm or ranch family who has experienced a major illness, injury or natural disaster to apply for assistance at FarmRescue.org.

Farm Rescue can provide the necessary equipment and volunteers to plant, harvest crops and assist with livestock feeding.
