Nashville - Beekeepers to blueberry farmers are still working to bounce back from the drought, freeze, and fires that crippled the ag industry this year.

Tuesday, many of them appealed to Senator Saxby Chambliss for help.

Nashville was one stop on his tour of the area to educate farmers on the Farm Bill process and relief options currently being offered.

He says some relief efforts are currently in place and is working with U.S. and state officials to secure more.  "They is going to be having some relief. We'll be looking at some additional programs down the road. But there is some loan money, lower interest loan money that is available to them as a result of being declared a disaster area," Senator Chambliss says.

Information and applications for the loans are available for farmers at their local Farm Service Agency office.
