Are you worried about labor next season on your farm? 

Are you wondering if the H-2A program will make sense on your farm? 

The H-2A program allows US employers who meet specific regulatory requirements to bring foreign nationals to the US to fill temporary agricultural jobs. Join us to learn about how to use the H-2A program on small farms. Learn from US DOL H-2A staff and a CSA vegetable farmer, with experience using H-2A, about what it takes to use the program.

1:30-1:45pm—Welcome and Introductions
1:45-2:45pm—US DOL Wage and Hour Division will discuss compliance with the H-2A requirements
2:45-4:00pm—Small farmer employer perspective: Learn from a CSA vegetable farmer, Ray Luhrman of Fox Creek Farm, what it's like to employ H-2A workers on a small, diversified farm
