My uncle had a dairy farm in N. Dakota. He had milking machines and no illegal workers. So I guess it does work for some. Anyone knows that farming is hard work and farm equipment is not cheap, but in the long run does make it somewhat easier.

So the farm 20 miles north of Buffalo asked its pick-your-own customers for the extra hands. Neighbors sent help but in the end, the farm couldn’t finish the harvest. Coulter said he was down at least $20,000.

Only 20 miles from Buffalo???Got to be some poor people in Buffalo that need jobs.

down $20,000????? How much extra $$ did he make over the years using illegals for labor???

I didn't think we'd have to worry about the homegrown spinach. Re: the article, those towns mentioned are in my neck of the woods. The farm jobs used to be hotly sought after jobs for the high school kids. Every big box store and fast food joint that's opened up over the past 25 years has siphoned off all that potential teenage help.
