By any chance, does anyone here have experience teaching English to farm workers?

Yes. I teach refugees and the majority of them were farm workers in their native countries. For them, this meant that they did not "need" to go to school, so many of them are illiterate in their L1. It can make things difficult when it comes to reading and writing in class, so I try to focus more on communicative goals with them.
