VIDEO: Canadian Farmer Visits His Jamaican Workers in Jamaica

Canadian farmer Josh Oulton

Josh Oulton, a Canadian farmer from Nova Scotia, visited Jamaica to better understand what the home environment of his temporary Jamaican workers. Oulton hires Jamaicans to do farm work eight months of the year at his farm in the Annapolis Valley. Some of his workers have been returning to work for him for ten years. Many have their own farms in Jamaica, and during his visit, Oulton did some hands-on work, helping to plant yams at one island farm. Many Jamaicans leave their homes to work overseas in Canada, and while the two countries are unique, Oulton’s visit highlighted the common bonds that exist between people of different backgrounds.
