Thanksgiving is all about the food, but few of us know much about the work that goes into getting that food to grocery store shelves.

Check out the work that goes into your Thanksgiving staples: onions, cranberries, Brussels sprouts, potatoes, and, while it’s not the most common Thanksgiving food, a pineapple harvesting video you have got to see.
