The Ohio Farm Bureau is proud to announce a partnership with Great Lakes Agricultural Labor Services, LLC. GLALS is a full-service agent helping farms secure labor through the H-2A foreign worker visa program.

GLALS’ team works closely with farm sector employers to ensure their agricultural business is properly staffed, prepared and everyone is on the same page.
