The agricultural fields of rural Eastern North Carolina produce bountiful crops for America's food markets, as well as most of the tobacco grown in America. These crops are harvested by migrant farm workers, mostly from Mexico, some of who have seasonal work visas and some of who are undocumented. Some farm workers settle in the area, while others migrate with the winter harvest to Florida or return to Mexico. Thousands of miles from the Mexican border, a growing, vibrant hispanic culture is taking root in North Carolina.
