Thanksgiving is just around the corner and on Saturday two turkeys hoping to be pardoned by President Obama stopped on the Central Coast.
It was all part of the Ag in the Classroom Teacher Conference at the Cliff's Resort in Shell Beach.
Representatives from Foster Farms were on hand to talk about their role in raising this year's presidential bird and the importance of agriculture.
"Agriculture is important to all of us, and all of us have to eat and have fiber for clothing, so we want to show the importance of not only what agriculture is to the state of California, but to the nation and the world in general," said Ira Brister of Foster Farms.
The turkeys will visit students and teachers in Los Angeles before rejoining their flock of 25 in Modesto.
Foster Farms' VP of Turkey will handpick the presidential turkey, and his alternate, from that flock.
