Farm Workers

Here at the farm, we have been hiring workers from Mexico since 1989. The Seasonal Agricultural Workers Program is essential to not only Barrie Hill Farms, but also to horticultural producers across Canada.

The Canadian Horticultural Council has produced an excellent short film telling some of the personal stories of this program. It’s really well done, and I would encourage you to take a half an hour of your time to watch it.

Over the coming months, I will highlight some of the stories of our workers, and what buying local means for them and their families back home. Thanks for choosing local!
