My nickname is Pieces. I don’t know where I got it except that there were four Anthonys working on this farm one summer and so we needed nicknames to keep each other straight and it has stuck.
I’ve been coming here for 20 years from Trinidad & Tobago. At first, I thought it was a good way to earn some bread but I like it here and I’ve never stopped coming. It’s a good place to work. Normally I come in April but this year, it was the 6th of July before I got here – and then I had to spend 14 days inside for quarantine. That was enough to make a man a little bit crazy. Back home, I’ve got three kids – twin girls and a boy – and nine grandchildren. I call home twice a week.
