Leading Advocacy Efforts for Agricultural Employers and Their Critical Allies Since 1964

The National Council of Agricultural Employers

The National Council of Agricultural Employers (NCAE) is the only national association focusing exclusively on agricultural labor issues from the Agricultural Employer’s viewpoint. We represent the interests of agricultural employers, growers, associations and others whose business interests revolve around labor-intensive agriculture.

Advocating for Employers and Influencing Policy

As activists for agricultural employers, we aim to ensure access to foreign worker visa programs, and to prevent harmful regulatory proposals. We actively monitor federal policies and regulations that put these objectives at risk.
