Its primary functions were to recruit field labor for tomato growers, set price rates for workers and hire attorneys to advise growers on the Bracero farm worker program. Isaac Newton Robinson Jr. (1897-2002) lived and farmed on Roberts Island for an entire century. He headed a farming operation that involved forty square miles of San Joaquin County land and consisted of vine farms and four corporations, including a feed company, a land leveling business and a duck club. Robinson was active in farmer organizations such as the Roberts-Union Farm Center, the Woods-Robinson-Vasquez Irrigation District, the California Tomato Growers Association and the San Joaquin County Farm Bureau.
