Driven by Milk on My Mind, a dairy awareness program initiated by the Georgia Agriculture Commodity Commission for Milk (ACCM), the partnership with Kroger aims to educate consumers about the benefits and versatility of milk and dairy foods.

One of the greatest privileges I’ve had as Georgia Agriculture Commissioner is the opportunity to visit with folks across this great state and country. During my travels, I enjoy revealing the seldom-told story behind our state’s name. Most know that the State of Georgia was named after King George II of England. But many do not realize that Georgia is a feminine form of the Greek Georgios, meaning tiller of the soil, or farmer.
