International workers need to get here quickly for spring planting By Jan VanderHout
Now more than ever, we know how important it is for Canadian farmers to be able to continue to grow their crops and raise their livestock. A safe, consistent food supply is an essential service, especially during a global crisis like this when other countries around the world are facing the same problems we are.
Our family business is Beverly Greenhouses, a third-generation greenhouse cucumber farm where we grow 30 acres of English cucumbers. Consumers across southern Ontario, in Atlantic Canada and parts of the United States eat our cucumbers, which we sell directly to retailers as well as to the Ontario Food Terminal.
