    • Access to workers is an issue for many farms
    • Larger farms tend to pay higher wages than smaller farms; there is little relationship between benefits offered and farm size
  • Conclusions
    • Workers need more life skills
    • Workers need more hands on experience in some cases
    • A web based job board would be useful
