Credit the Italians for this one. “Spaghetti” comes from the word “spago” which translates as “thin string” or “twine.” Without farmers, there’d be no spaghetti, and farmers, regardless of size, are being encouraged to fill out a pre-census survey form from the USDA’s National Agricultural Statistics Service to make sure their farms are included in the Ag Census later this year.
