George Pierce Jr relied heavily on Punjabi agricultural laborers for their services as farmhands on his almond orchard in Davisville, CA. The first Punjabi farmers arrived in the spring of 1907 to work on his farms. One of the Punjabi laborers, Munsha Singh, became the linchpin of the Pierce farms, recruiting Punjabis from all over northern California and in helping to manage the farm operations.
