Who will renew agriculture in North America in the future? Historically, we looked to the children of family farmers to become our future farmers. Today, Latinos make up a large and growing percentage of the people who do the vast majority of the day-to-day work on US farms. Across the US, among farmworkers for all crops, Latinos comprise more than 80% of the total. More than 75% are originally from Mexico, with an average of ten years in the US. In spite of this growing and increasingly stable population of farmworkers, only 3% of farm owners in the US are Latino.
