Observing National Farm Worker Awareness Week.
Originally from Huahuaxtla, Puebla, since 2018, Rey Lucas Antonio has come to the US 4 times to work the apple harvest.
Working with CIERTO, Rey migrates each year on an H-2A visa. Rey has a TON of crop-specific expertise and an amazing work ethic, so he has been requested repeatedly by – and has returned to – the same grower each season.
Thanks to his continued participation in the H-2A program and hard work, Rey has been able to to purchase a coffee plantation in Mexico, and to build his family a new home.
It’s one of the true success stories that bloom when you can bring together responsible recruitment, a great candidate for the job, and a grower who recognizes the benefits of a professional labor force, valued for their skills and hard work!
