Seasonal workers from overseas working on Herefordshire farms
Tuesday 1 June 2021 12.46pm
The seasonal workers from overseas on farms in Herefordshire survey (farm survey) is helping to fill the gaps in understanding of the seasonal workforce employed by farms in Herefordshire.
During the COVID pandemic it was felt that there was a lack of up to date information about Herefordshire’s seasonal workforce in terms of providing necessary support during an outbreak. Therefore, it was recommended that a new farm survey, which provides most up to date information, be undertaken for the first time since 2014.
A factual summary provides the results of the survey, which was carried out in March 2021, can be downloaded from the workforce page of the Understanding Herefordshire website.
