Additional Information

The Cook County Truck Gardeners and Farmers Association (CCTG and F) began in 1902. It was a cooperative of local farmers who drove their produce into Chicago for sale. At its height during the middle twentieth century, the CCTG and F had its own insurance company, owned real estate, had about three thousand members, and was the largest organization within the Vegetable Growers’ Association of America. The CCTG and F disbanded during the 1960s.  This button likely dates from its 1941 annual conference.
