Israel L., Guest worker at Nature Fresh Farms

“My dream is to start my own business that I can dedicate myself to and support my family with.”

For the last six years, Israel L. has worked at our greenhouse operation with Canada’s Temporary Foreign Worker Program. Israel comes from a humble, affectionate family in Guatemala who have a desire to excel and always be better, so his choice to come to Canada was largely driven by his family’s ambition to live a better life

With a family that values self-improvement, Israel’s choice to come to Canada made a lot of sense for him: “Before I came to Canada, I dedicated myself to agriculture back home, but I wanted to improve even more and to pursue my dreams of starting my own business in Guatemala and supporting my family. That’s why I decided to start working as part of this program.”

Israel is thankful to Nature Fresh Farms for the opportunity to work with them for several years: “Thank you Nature Fresh Farms – you have benefited me and my family so that we can have a better quality of life. This company helps people like me fulfill their dreams and improve themselves by providing good job opportunities.”

In his free time, Israel enjoys playing soccer and spending time with his friends and colleagues. He also enjoys talking with his family whenever he can!

As one of our valued team members, it is Israel’s responsibility to tackle a range of crop maintenance tasks with speed and care. Israel also believes in punctuality and giving his best effort to get the job done and comply with everything he is asked to do. Israel is one of our #GrowToPeople!
