What is H-2A?

The H-2A program is the only legal non-immigrant foreign worker visa program available to agricultural employers with a seasonal labor need.

Who Can Use H-2A?

Any U.S. agricultural employer that demonstrates a seasonal recurring labor need may apply for the H‐2A program. Our clients represent a broad spectrum of the agricultural industry from small, family farms to large, corporate producers including:

  • Grain, wheat, sugarcane, and other row crop growers
  • Fruit and vegetable growers
  • Orchards and vineyards
  • Organic and specialty agricultural businesses
  • Wholesale nurseries and horticultural operations
  • Christmas tree farms
  • Aquaculture (crawfish, catfish harvesting)
  • Farm labor contractors providing agricultural services
  • Cotton gins
  • Livestock operations
  • Agricultural and horticultural associations

Why Choose H-2A?

Reliable Labor

Agricultural work includes some of the toughest and most important jobs in the world. The H-2A program provides a way to link capable, reliable and legal labor to agricultural employers in need. H-2A workers typically return to the same employer year after year, providing essential help nationwide. For decades, AgWorks has helped employers connect with over 15,000 workers each year.

Legal Labor

Farmers face many obstacles in today’s global economy, including access to a reliable and legal workforce. Studies show that a large portion of the U.S. agricultural workforce is unauthorized. As national security concerns increase, workers who have been involved with agricultural work in the past may no longer be available. The H-2A program is a dependable and lawful avenue to obtain legal workers.

Grow Your Business

A dependable workforce is an essential component to successful business growth. AgWorks helps hundreds of clients each year to  grow their businesses using the H-2A program. A stable workforce provides employers the confidence needed to expand their operations and to meet increased market demand.

A Successful Growing Season

Our passion to help our clients drives us to know each employer and identify their individual needs. This hands on approach maximizes benefits and minimizes potential liabilities of the H-2A program. The process is neither easy nor routine, but AgWorks has the experience, knowledge and commitment to customer service to help with a successful growing season using the H-2A program.
