Some social media engagement from the Thanksgiving weekend
By Diego Flammini
American families sat around tables over the weekend to break bread and celebrate Thanksgiving.
With that at top of mind, Farms.com searched social media to see how members of the U.S. ag sector celebrated the holiday.
“This Thanksgiving, Missouri Soybeans is thankful for the work of our farmers!” the organization said on Twitter. “The sacrifices made by farmers are why our appreciation extends past this day of thanks and continues year-round. Thank you farmers.”
Farmers and the greater ag community not only make Thanksgiving possible, but every meal Americans eat.
“Happy Thanksgiving! We are thankful for our crop advisors, farmers, and the families behind making (Thanksgiving’s) and every day’s wonderful meals possible for the rest of the world. Thank you!” Simplot Grower Solutions said.
Many people may have found themselves around the TV watching football during Thanksgiving festivities.
That was the case for Garrett Smith from Texas, as his celebrations included watching Texas A&M beat LSU by a score of 38 to 26.
“#Thankful for another good #Thanksgiving!” he said on Twitter on Nov. 27.
And a farmer named Phillip posted a short video of fieldwork to show a farmer’s work is never finished.
“Happy Thanksgiving everyone farm work never stops have a good day everyone,” he said on Twitter on Nov. 24.
