While preparing your homes and readying your kitchen for Thanksgiving festivities, the National Corn Growers Association encourages you to take a moment to thank the farmers who provide a bountiful harvest every year.

The hard work and dedication of U.S. farmers allows Americans to enjoy an abundance and vast variety of affordable foods. Click here and send a short e-mail saying why you are thankful for farmers this year.

NCGA will run a story featuring quotes from submissions in a tribute to the men and women who feed our country.
