Thanksgiving is a day to be spent with friends and family as you reflect on the many blessings from the year to date. AgXplore, as a company, has so many things to be thankful for, but at the top of our list are our customers and the wonderful people who make up our team. We have had an immense amount of growth this year and have added many new faces to our AgXplore family. One of the greatest gifts of all is that we get to work in an industry which all of us love and are passionate about, all the while being backed by a supportive and truly caring team. This year, rather then narrate the company’s successes, we wanted to give most of our team members the chance to share what they are most grateful for.
