Mothers, sisters, and daughters leave their homes and families in Mexico to travel approximately 1800 miles to work legally at Titan Farms in Ridge Spring, South Carolina. For the next 5 months, they will work 10-12 hours a day, six days a week, sorting and packing peaches at the second largest peach producer on the east coast.

The sacrifices they make now will enable them to provide for their families back home in Mexico. Their desire for financial stability and prosperity is met with an equally desperate need for workers at Titan Farms. The farm would be unable to keep up with the demand without the H2-A Visa temporary worker program. Agricultural businesses that can prove that they are unable to find workers domestically are allowed to hire foreign workers for seasonal work.
