Meet Lesvia, Juan, Albert & Herman!
It takes many hands to tend, harvest and pack the fruits and vegetables that supply Northeast kitchens. Farms depend on skilled, reliable employees both for year-round farm work and for the extra hours needed at harvest season.
Farm work involves long days and strenuous physical labor in all kinds of weather. Crops wait for no one when they are ready to be picked. Few people in the US are willing and able to do this work year round, and even fewer are interested in seasonal work. Most Americans no longer have any experience with agriculture. As a result the essential work of bringing food to our tables is done mostly by people from other countries, who come here either temporarily or to stay and make a life.
