Local farms that wish to participate in the H 2A program must apply for temporary foreign agricultural labor certification and undertake a complicated process that is not inexpensive or easy to complete.

It is important that members of our farming communities and all of us who value locally grown food take note of what is happening. We all need to stand up and support the farms that help maintain our towns' historic rural character.
