A Guide to the Services Provided by Farm Aid H-2A LLC

Farmworkers picking crops on a farm

The US food and agricultural sector is a $1.53 trillion industry. Although the industry is huge with great demand, it faces a shortage of domestic agricultural labor. The industry employs about 1.5 – 2 million hired workers, of which about 73% are immigrants.

To fill the gap of domestic labor supply, the country allows farmers to hire migrant farmhands via an H-2A visa program. Farm Aid H-2A LLC helps these farmers hire foreign help by assisting them with legal paperwork and finding them the best migrant talent with skills and expertise that complement their work processes.

 

What is the H-2A Program?

H-2A is a temporary agricultural visa program that allows farmers facing a lack of domestic farm help to hire migrant laborers. The program permits agricultural employers to hire foreign workers only if:

  1. the job is of a temporary or seasonal nature,
  2. there isn’t sufficient domestic labor available that are qualified, willing, and able to do the job, and
  3. the employment of the migrant farmhands will have no adverse impact on the wages and working conditions of the domestic employees.

The program’s application requires the petitioner to first apply for temporary labor certification to the Department of Labor. Once the petitioner has received the certificate, they can file a petition for nonimmigrant employees. Only after they have received the approval can their prospective migrant employees apply for an H-2A visa.

 

What Service Do We Provide?

Being an H-2A visa recruitment agency, we don’t just help you with the legal process but also help you find the best talent. Our services can be divided into three major functions:

 

Locating Talent

We find you the right talent that matches your needs. Most migrant workers start work from a very young age and therefore possess great skills and expertise. We ensure that the labor we find you has the right skills that can complement your work processes and farming methods and techniques.

Transportation to Farm

We also make sure that your workers are safely transported to your farms without any hustle.

To ensure there is no such issue, we provide them transportation to your farms as well.
