      Migrant and Seasonal Farm Workers Many migrant farm workers travel to Minnesota each year to help with the cultivating and harvesting of several crops in specific regions of the state. Other workers come in search of longer-term, higher-wage jobs in non-agricultural industries.   California is by far the most important source of fruits, vegetables, nuts, dairy, meat, and other products of the U.S. food system. The list of U.S.- grown foods produced almost exclusively in California by the state’s roughly eight hundred thousand farmworkers is a long one, including two thirds of the country’s fruits and nuts, and one third of its vegetables.

        Migrant farm workers are doing work that most Americans would not do today. Dairy Farmers receive less money for milk today than they did back 40 or more years ago. In , six or seven workers had been needed for each acre of sugarbeets. Today, the migrant worker has disappeared from the sugarbeet fields of the Red River Valley. Many of the Mexican-Americans who first came to the state as migrant workers have now made their permanent homes in North Dakota.
