California Thanksgiving - Part 3
Well Happy Thanksgiving! This entire week California Ag Today’s Patrick Cavanaugh has been sharing a few of the many reasons we should all be thankful for California agriculture.
Cavanaugh… “It's truly a California Thanksgiving, as most of the products come from growers and ranchers here. You have apples and those small round watermelons that are a great snack or a dessert item, or as part of a fruit salad. And California ranchers produce other types of poultry and lamb, if you want to go that way. And of course, Martinelli's sparkling apple or grape cider from Watsonville near the Monterey Bay area. Local growers provide the tree ripened fruit to the award-winning company, which is more than 140 years old and still family-owned, and it's run by the founder's grandson and great grandson. In fact it was 1890 when the company was awarded the first place at the California State Fair. Except for the cranberries, it's truly a Thanksgiving from California. And we're really grateful for the California farmers and ranchers for providing so much for us on this great holiday.”
Thank you Patrick! We needed three segments to try to cover as many of the California products on your table today as possible, and we probably still missed some. A very Happy Thanksgiving to all of you, and especially to our California farmers and ranchers, on behalf of all of us here at the Ag Information Network.
