Thanks for the special ag section

I'm writing to commend The Bee, its reporters and photographers for producing “Living in The Valley – Bountiful Harvest,” which published Aug. 11.

I enjoyed learning how much the agricultural industry has evolved over the years. I’m an 88-year-old, life-long Modesto resident who grew up and raised a family relying on Stanislaus County's rich agricultural soil. Not only was farming our livelihood, it was our heritage. Rural living was peaceful and rewarding.

I thank you for the memories and providing nearly 30 pages of quality reporting and spectacular photography illustrating our region’s thriving agricultural production.
