The Farm Workers

For years from sun up until after the sun has set, the farm workers have been there for us. For the growers. For the shippers. For the communities that welcome them each year. For anyone who wants to eat nutritious leafy greens year round. Without our farm workers, where would we be?

Labor of Love thanks...
