For the past several years, there has been an effort in place to encourage people to give thanks for their food through social media.

C is for Cotton — an A to Z Series about Agriculture

I have to do it. Sure, there were lots of suggestions for C words that are important parts of agriculture and in fact, Kim Parsell gave me a whole list! KentFarms _LA lobbied for cattle (Angus cattle to be clear) and several people echoed that cows would be a perfect choice and others suggested corn. […]
